    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    many states are for too lax in their standards. statistics PROVE that teen drivers are dangerous on the road.

    No, it wouldn't be a "blanket solution to a complex issue", and I'm not even saying this to give government "more control over our lives"... having a permit period where new drivers can learn to be comfortable on the road and experienced drivers can watch over them as they learn the ins and outs just makes sense in my mind.

    Having a driving test is MUCH different than driving by oneself, let alone driving in general.

    And how would a Federal Standard make Teen Drivers better drivers?

    FiveThirtyEight: Politics Done Right: Hyundai's Very Undude Car Ads

    Have you seen those new Hyundai Sonata ads? In one of them we are watching an obviously frustrated, presumably senile septuagenarian fumbling with a medicine bottle, when Oscar winning-actor Jeff Bridges’ unmistakably charcoal voice pipes in with this foreboding enthymeme: “Millions of elderly adults continue to drive on our roads, year after year, with nothing more than a periodic eye exam required to renew their licenses...better get yourself a safe car. The all-new Sonata, from Hyundai.” If this ad doesn't sound familiar, that’s because there is no such ad. You can bet that Hyundai, or its Madison Avenue consultants, wouldn't dare run an ad like that. The political blowback would be so swift and foreceful the company's CEO would soon be on all the networks apologizing to seniors and probably announcing a huge corporate donation to some senior-related charity. So why is Hyundai in fact running a pair of television commercials--including the visually entertaining "Slingshot" ad, below--that encourage consumers to buy their safe Sonatas because of the threat posed by newly-licensed young drivers? And why is there not a peep of complaint from anyone about this ad campaign?
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Transporation is a power delegated to the states, the federal government has no business getting involved. Teens are the most dangerous because they are ****ing stupid, they think driving is a game.

    This is kind of off-topic but the drivers education system in America is AWFUL. Now I know why liberals wants more control because some private businesses can't do a damn thing.

    So you've experienced drivers education in all 50 states to be able to come to that conclusion?

    I'm a liberal and I oppose a federal standard for driver's licenses.
