Teens with ADHD and Driving
We've discussed before about the added risks for teens with ADHD when driving. A recent study added more research to the discussion. According to an article in The Morning Sun, "Researchers in Michigan say that adolescents with ADHD have all of the skills that their peers have when it comes to driving, but they are more likely to run stop signs and stop lights, and they're more likely to have car accidents in general."
The researchers hope finding the cause for the increased accidents will help in developing educational programs for young drivers with ADHD.
