Listening To Fast Music While Driving Causes More Accidents

from the get-out-the-muzak dept

A new study shows that the faster the tempo of music you listen to while driving, the more likely you are to get into an accident. People in the test listening to faster music took more risks. The study also found that music has an impact on heart rate of the driver, suggesting that it’s a “distracting factor”. With all the talk of banning mobile phones in cars for being distracting, maybe someone will soon suggest banning music in cars. And, then, they can ban talking in cars. Maybe they’ll even ban driving in cars.
