ADHD drivers pose challenge

All parents are concerned when their teens start to drive. But parents of teens with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder have added anxieties. And for good reason. Statistics show that a teen driver with ADHD is up to four times more likely than other adolescent drivers to be involved in an accident and three times more likely to sustain an injury from that accident. They’re also four times more likely to be at fault when an accident happens and eight times more likely to have their licenses suspended because of multiple violations.
