I totally disagree. I got my license at 16 and my sons did also. My wife was 17. None of us ever had a weather-related accident. If you watch this paper during the winter, I think you will find that most of the winter accidents are caused by people who drive too fast for road conditions and they probably won't be teenagers.
The only accident my youngest son ever had in his 44 years was when he was in college and a senior citizen backed out of her driveway and struck him.
My wife, now a senior citizen, used to love driving on winter roads but became fearful of them some years ago. Now she does not drive in the snow.
I do not feel age has anything to do with bad driving. It's all about how you were taught and how you respect others on the road.

Here's why 17 year-olds don't belong behind a wheel. Not because he was necessarily doing anything wrong, he could be an honor student for all we know. But 17 yo are not mature enough to drive cars in any conditions let alone winter.
You won't trust a 17 yo with a glass of wine, or with a vote, or to handle a machine gun in the military. Then it stands to reason they sure as heck don't belong behind the wheel of a 2 ton weapon on wheels.
18 should be the driving age. 16/17 yo girls are especially incapable - emotionally, mentally, physically - of driving an automobile. Shoot, a lot of them aren't capable.. ever. Teenage boys too. It's time we treat driving as a privilege - all of us - and not a god-given right.
