This explains a lot about how people drive in the mornings.
According to a new study, 80 percent of people under 30 HAVE to have music to drive. As in, it would be impossible to drive without it.
“To young drivers 18-29, music in the car isn’t just entertainment, it’s part of their autosphere whether they’re alone or not,” says Prof. Warren Brodsky, director of the BGU Music Science Lab, in a university release. “They are so used to constant stimulation and absorbing great amounts of information throughout the day, that they don’t question how the type of tunes they play might affect concentration, induce aggressive behavior, or cause them to miscalculate risky situations.”
The study also found 90 percent like listening to “upbeat” music on the way to a party and 65 percent need “fast-paced” music on their way to work.
Just to even this out, the AAA says that distracted driving kills nine people and injures over 1,000 every day in the United States.
