Ridiculous Study of the Week: Taking Medication is Probably a Good Thing

A new study indicates that motor vehicle accident rates are lower among ADHD patients when they……wait for it….take their medication.  Pow!!!  Earth shattering news.  As the article states:

Past studies have found that people with ADHD are at an increased risk for crashes, and that medication may reduce symptoms and ultimately improve driving skills.

Hmmm. Past studies?  So this study had to done again?  My hunch is that we should put this controversial debate to bed. If you have ADHD then take your medication.  And that may help your driving.
