    I don't think it's broke so I ain't gonna ask for it to be fixed.

    I think keep it as it is.

    There are a lot of 17-year-olds that rush into it and act like idiots, so if it was lowered it'd just be the same with 16-year-olds.

    I think there should be more restrictions like maybe taking a certain number of hours experience before being able to take your test, or as mentioned, have a certain engine size.

    I don't think restricting who they have in the car or at what time would do any good although I do think there are a lot of idiots who drive about at night, but they aren't necessarily 17.

Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
