When you’re driving in your car, a typical way to pass the time is to turn on some tunes. However, what you’re listening to may actually affect your driving skills.
Confused.com reports that listening to music could ultimately predict how well you drive. The UK website looked at specific songs and how drivers reacted to them. The experts foundthat a woman who listened to hip hop tended to drive more aggressively, while men jamming out to heavy metal increased their speed. Surprisingly,it was classical music that caused both men and women to drive more erratically than if they were not listening to music at all.
“Music that is noisy, upbeat and increases your heart rate is a deadly mix,” Dr. Simon Moore, a psychologist who reviewed the driving footage, told the news provider. “Fast beats can cause excitement and arousal that can lead people to concentrate more on the music than on the road. In addition, a fast tempo can cause people to subconsciously speed up to match the beat of the song. Also, listening to music you don’t like can cause stress and distraction and this also negatively affects driving.”
Listening to music may not onlyaffect your driving skills, it could be dangerous. The Globe and Mail reports that listening to music while driving could cause an accident, because the driver is distracted.
