    Is this thread basically another way to boast? There seem to be quite a few threads that begin something like "I'm not doing this to boast, but I earn 10 grand a month, what should I do with it?", etc...

    No I assure you I'm serious. No intention of boasting or anything, why would I:confused:?

    How have you been driving since the age of 14 you have to be 17 to legally learn to drive in the UK?

    In Canada (Not sure about all the provinces), you can drive supervised at 14 and have a full license (with a lower limit on points) and drive alone at 16.

    I live both in Canada and the UK. The UK's driving age is way to high IMO.

    Speeding is a very common thing and not everyone notices their speed increasing sometimes and they could do it unknowingly.
    "Could do it unknowingly" Are you mad?

    I disagree I think the driving age in UK is about right there are enough people on the raod as it is and the majority of crashes involve 17-21 year olds so lowering the age to would only make this problem worse.

    Most people are mentally developed by 16 and can drive. Lets say the theory that young drivers are worse stands, that means in the US and Canada bad driving will happen between 16-20 and in the uk between 17-21. Assuming that it takes 3 years of experience to drive properly.

    Mind you in Canada weather conditions are much harsher and you need to drive a lot in snow and manage to brake on ice (with a car without ABS).

    Personally, the charities I support are the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and the Teenage Cancer Trust. Both for reasons very close to my heart. I used to have a monthly direct debit to CFT but just can't afford to do that anymore, so instead I try to organise fundraisers and give money myself to sponsor the people I get involved, and the occasional personal donation if I have a good payday. It actually raises more than I could ever donate, so it's for the best really! I would do pretty much anything to find a cure for CF and for cancer, so to be honest any money to either of those would get instant approval from me.

    I appreciate the sentiment, but I honestly believe that I'm only doing what anyone else touched so closely by the diseases would have done. It might be selfish to think this way, but being able to feel as though I'm making a difference helps me to grieve for those I've lost/am losing.
