Can listening to music cause a car accident?
With satellite radio, iPods, CD players and Bluetooth devices, it is easier than ever to listen to music in the car. But is it safe to do so?
Research has shown that music has an impact on driving patterns; for example, drivers listening to loud or fast music may be at increased risk of speeding or making erratic decisions. When it comes to listening to music in the car, a lot of the driver distraction takes place not just by listening to it, but controlling it. Fiddling with song choices and volume, or with connecting music devices such as MP3s or iPods can mean drivers are not looking at the roads when they should be.
