Swedish officials deem ADHD number plate ‘offensive’

Posted Feb 03 2009 12:09am

There are times when people just do some really crazy things and I think this is one of those times. I just found this article in one of my alerts:

A Swedish motorist has been banned from using the letters ADHD on her personalised number plate - over fears it would offend attention deficit suffers.

[From Ananova - ADHD number plate 'offensive' ]

Excuse me? how PC has the world gotten, really. It takes an awful lot to offend me on the subject of ADHD. Ignorance will do it, but my question in this case is what in the world caused them to make this decision. Isn’t it possible that the person that attempted to get this particular license plate either Has or Treats ADHD?

What are your thoughts on this one? I’d really love to know.
