Rules of the Road: Don’t Let Your Mood, Good Or Bad, Change The…

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

While it can sometimes be easier said than done, when you’re behind the wheel, you shouldn’t let you mood influence the way you drive. This goes for both good moods and bad moods. When you buckle up your seat belt (which you should be doing every time you get in the car) and get out onto the road, you need to make sure that the task at hand is first and foremost in your thoughts. When you fail to do this, you’re opening yourself up to potentially damaging and dangerous situations that you be trying to avoid.

When you’re upset about something, it can be very distracting and often be the only thing you’re thinking about. But being distracted is the last thing you want when driving, so if you feel like this issue is something that you can’t set aside, then you should reconsider getting behind the wheel. When that’s not an option, you need to make a concerted effort to overcome it, at least until you’re done driving, so that your reaction time and alertness aren’t affected by your mood.

Of course, the same thing can be said for when you’re in a good mood. Someone that is excited about their destination and what they’ll be doing when they get there, can just as easily fail to properly focus on defensive driving. That, of course, has the potential of really putting a damper on whatever it is you’re excited about in the first place.
