Question of the Day

Should Ohio lower the drinking age and raise the driving age to reduce drunken driving?

45% YES
55% NO

Comment: How do you think people are going to get to work if they don't have a license! Who's working to pay their bills? And sometimes you need a drink to relax. from Cleveland, OH by Ciara

Comment: With at least 5 years, a driver will hopefully learn the responsibilities of driving and better driving, etc before the addition of alcohol. If they happen at all once, even worse decisions are going to be made.

Comment: If your old enough to die for your country, your old enough to drink. I have no opinion on driving. from kettering, Ohio by Todd

Comment: It's sad that you're considered a legal adult at 18 but you're not able to make adult decisions at 18 without government intrusion. Harshen the punishment and lower the age to drink/enter casinos. Raising or lowering the age to legally do something isnt a deterrent...making the punishment harsh when you mess up, now THAT'S a deterrent. Remember growing up when you werent supposed to hit your sibling(s). Did that stop you from doing so? No? Thought so. Now what about when Mom told you that you'd be grounded for the summer if you hit them? I bet you put on the brakes then... from Piqua, OH by Josh

Comment: As of 18 years old you are legally an adult and responsible for your own actions under the law. Also you are legally allowed to fight, kill, and die for your country yet you can't legally buy a beer. This has never made sense to me. If you aren't responsible enough to drink in the eyes of the law then why is the government allowed to hand you an automatic weapon an send you into a war zone? from dayton, oh by Rachael

Comment: The driving age and drinking age both need to be raised together. Society as a whole is being babied way too much these days and people are not being held to strict enough consequences for their actions. from Vandalia, OH by Amber

Comment: As of 18 years old you are legally an adult and responsible for your own actions under the law. Also you are legally allowed to fight, kill, and die for your country yet you can't legally buy a beer. This has never made sense to me. If you aren't responsible enough to drink in the eyes of the law then why is the government allowed to hand you an automatic weapon an send you into a war zone? Also I think most teens these days arent ready to responsibly drive at 16. However I don't think either of these changes will reduce drunk driving because that is a matter of individual maturity. from dayton, oh by Rachael

Comment: If you can fight for our country, you can have a beer! from Bradford, Oh by Jim

Comment: 18 from Troy ohio by austin

Comment: Let think about this you are saying is that you want the kids of the future to get drunk ( because they will) and not study and get good grades oh and mom and dad have to drive them everywhere still cause that is what I want to do drop my son off at bar(but he has to have his homework done first)and then come back to pick him up that is the dumbest question I have read in awhile from Jamestown ohio by Robert

Comment: lowering the age to drink and raising the age to drive is stupid . even when they are not driving they make stupid choices and still can kill from west chester,ohio by rebekah

Comment: I believe the driving age should be raised to 18 years of age, and the legal adulthood age be raised to 21 and keep the drinking age at 21. from West Alexandria, OH by Clayton

Comment: drinking age should stay the same as well as driving age from dayton ohio by Devon

Comment: Ohio should raise the driving age to prevent tragic teen deaths, stop telling where the sobriety check points are and crack down on drunk drivers the first time they are caught! from Brookville, OH by Kim

Comment: If you are in the Military then the age requirement should be waved at 18, otherwise leave it at 21. As for Driving, to School and Work only until 18 or Graduation. from Fairborn by Dave

Comment: Way too many young people are out there getting drunk--21 or not and wasting their lives and risking lives of others. from Fairborn, OH by Ann

Comment: Yes I agree with that because there's way to many kids that I know of that are driving at the age of 16 with alcohol in their systems. from dayton by Dean

Comment: I feel strongly it should go down to 18, if you can join the armed forces and fight for your country and die, then you should also be able to have a drink if you want. Maybe they should consider raising the driving age to 18. from huber heights, ohio by Brittany

Comment: Sounds like there would be more drunk driving not less. Dumb idea. Who thinks of this stuff. from Trotwood,Ohio by Rod

Comment: Age Dont matter they get anyway

Comment: Making driver age higher sounds appropriate but drinking age should not be lowered. People do more than drive while drinking. from Franklin Ohio by Angie

Comment: No to lowering the Drinking Age except for Military personnel. Driving should be restricted for everything but School, Work, or an Emergency till age 18 or graduation. from Fairborn by Dave
