A distinct lack of concentration caused the accident
Many drivers like to play music in the car as they drive. There is no law against this practice and there hasn’t been since car radios were first introduced back in the 1930s. However, just as trying to use a mobile telephone in a car can be a distraction, so too can listening to music.
While listening to music isn’t illegal as we have said; it can be a point of distraction. This is particularly the case if the music is played too loud. Studies have proven that in many cases, the louder the music is played the more likely it is for the driver to suffer lapses in concentration.
Campaigners have tried – with no success at the present time – to have it made illegal to play music in motor vehicles. Where trying to make a mobile telephone call in a moving vehicle has been illegal since 2003; no such law applies to listening to music.
It isn’t just playing the music that can be distracting however. There is also changing radio channels, adjusting the volume levels or skipping tracks on a CD. All of these, while appearing to be modest and inconsequential tasks, can distract the driver from their main aim which is to concentrate on the road ahead.
