Emotions Affect DrivingJanuary 19, 2012 | in Leave Early, Drive Slower, Live Longer
Whether you are calm, nervous, or hot-tempered, your emotions affect the way you drive. Strong emotions can interfere with your ability to think and reason, reducing your ability to make decisions. Don’t let your emotions interfere with safe driving. Use good judgment, common sense, courtesy, and safe driving rules to ensure your safety and the safety of others.
Don’t drive when you are upset. Recognize when you are not fit to drive. Your emotions also affect the way you relate to others. If you are in good condition emotionally, you will be able to judge whether your passengers are giving you good or bad driving advice. If you are upset, you may follow a friend’s bad advice because you are not thinking clearly. If you feel good, your judgment will be better than if you are angry.← Mature Driver Improvement Courses and the Elderly Driver | Cruising to the Music →
