    Is it dangerous to listen to loud music whilst driving a car?


    This is a question which experts are always debating as to whether if you listen to loud music whilst driving you are more likely to have a car accident.

    Reasons for the idea of loud music causing a road traffic accidents

    When you listen to loud music in a confined space for a long period of time this can have a profound effect on your hearing and may even lead to hearing loss. With decreased sense of hearing you may not hear the noise of an oncoming siren or you may not hear that motorbike.

    Another reason why you may have a car accident if you listen to loud music whilst driving is that the music may distract you from focusing on the road. That loss of attention on the road could easily lead to a road traffic accident.

    Reasons against the idea of loud music causing a car crash

    Just like there is a case for the negative effects of listening to loud music in the car there are also positive impacts. For many people music may be a source of relaxation and soothing. This means that the chance of road rage is reduced as stress levels are decreased.

    This may apply to the driver, the passengers or  both, so it may lead to having more attention on the road and less distractions from the passengers. If you’ve been involved in a car crash and you have documentation to prove that you weren’t at fault, Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help.
