Russell Barkley CNN report on dangers of ADD teen drivers

CNN put this article out this morning and it makes a lot of sense. The thought of our 17 year old daughter driving just scares us to death..nice to know we aren't scared without reason...

We already planned on her waiting a tad longer..

I agree with waiting longer to allow them to drive alone, but they will be driving under my supervision as long as possible.

Lol, it's not just the ADHD teenagers who are dangerous on the road. The adults ADHD drivers are dangerous as well if they are not medicated.

I am sure over time they will be doing more research on adults as more information is well established about adults and ADHD.

I really think over time insurance companies may even have higher premiums for these types of diagnoses due to the data they are able to collect now. It is essentially no different than charging more for a younger person due to risk..this is obviously a much higher risk category.
