Legal Driving Age Made 21!!

As a follow up to my previous post on texting while driving and that the MD Legislature, having lost that battle, will now be going after just teen drivers to ban them from texting while driving. I've now learned that Virginia is going after teen drivers making stronger penalties for drunk driving offenses - just for teens.
What's up with the assault on teen drivers?! I totally understand pinching them for speeding or seatbelt wearing. But how is drunk driving or texting while driving any different for a teen than an adult? Its not, IMO. So, if this continues, why don't they just move the driving age to 21 or 25 for that matter?! And, who is representing teens' rights in these situations?
