Driving, while being a rite of passage and a huge responsibility, it is not a privilege that should automatically be granted to anyone who can pass a test. I contend that individuals who claim to have multiple personalities, dissociative identity disorder, or a diagnosis of an incapacitating dissociative disorder should have their driver’s license revoked indefinitely.
People who claim to have multiple personalities or other identities in their heads and/or bodies have no right to put the public in danger any more than a 12-year-old who takes the family car on a joy ride does. Those who claim to have no control, or limited control over the emergence of child, aggressive, self-injuring personalities and others can no longer be permitted to put unsuspecting drivers and the public, in danger. We all share the road and deserve to feel confident about our safety and the safety of children and elders who may be traveling with us.
After the revocation of the drivers licenses of these individuals, they should then qualify for reduced rates or free public transportation and guaranteed the same rights extended to anyone with major medical and/or mental health disability.
