Researchers and scientists have shown that music similar to that of your heart rate is best for releasing tension, therefore whilst driving it is important to choose the right genre of music.

It is thought that drivers are more likely to run red lights and speed when listening to fast, up-beat music, whilst slow, relaxing music can cause drivers to feel sleepy.

Drivers have rated their top three driving songs as: Bat Out Of Hell by Meat Loaf, Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody and Dancing Queen by Abba.

Music that comes in as most dangerous songs to listen to whilst driving is: Radar Lover by Golden Earring, Highway to Hell – AC/DC and Drive My Car by The Beatles.

Music can be a form of distraction when on long car journeys and help to reduce boredom and irritation, just be careful when selecting your songs you don’t want to speed your way to a ticket or fall asleep on route.
