Don’t Drive While Under Great Mental Stress

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Rules of the Road: Driving Tips

Good mental health is important, and this is especially the case when behind the wheel. There is no doubt that drivers who are not in a good mental state may drive more dangerously, fail to pay attention to conditions on the road, and basically behave in a manner which is not conducive to safe and proper driving. Needless to say, don’t drive while under great mental stress!

Being angry or upset is an unfortunate part of what makes us human, and although these emotions can’t be avoided, what can be avoided is negative behavior which can be engaged in after these emotions are experienced, and one thing which should be avoided while being angry or upset is driving! Whether there has been a bad break-up, painful job loss, or some other life disaster, it’s important to remember that the negative emotions expressed afterward may lead to even more painful consequences, and without a doubt, driving while under great mental strain can lead to accidents. Depending on the amount of mental anguish being experienced, it may be a good idea to just wait to get behind the wheel, or if it’s absolutely necessary to travel somewhere, it’s always okay to call a friend and ask for a ride.

If and when you do experience a real tragedy in life and your mind is completely occupied, then it’s perhaps not the best idea to get behind the wheel. Instead, find support so that you can return to a better mental state and one which can ensure safe driving. To learn more about proper driving behavior, be sure to take a high quality defensive driving course.
