Early-onset drunk driving, violent criminality, and mental disorders.


We examined an association between the onset age for drunk driving, psychiatric morbidity and/or violent criminality. Almost half of violent offenders with mental disorder committed their first drunk driving before 18 years of age. The younger the drunk driver was, the greater the probability was of being violent and mentally ill.
