Crash Test

Friends don't let friends drive happy:
While anger is the most potentially dangerous emotion, excitement and happiness can also cause drivers to fall foul of traffic laws.

Behavioural psychologist Jo Hemmings said: ‘If you’re giddy with joy, you’re likely to be self-absorbed, which may impair your concentration. When feeling happy, your heart rate could increase from a standard 60 beats per minute to 100.

‘Also, feel-good hormones such as dopamine and serotonin flood our bodies. This can make us feel highly alert but can sometimes impair focus and concentration.’
Don't be too happy behind the wheel?
