Nine out of ten users are not emotionally fit to drive

A study indicates that only 7% of drivers have the appropriate emotional control to get behind the wheel. A 72% is driving with a low emotional control, and 17% do not have any control.

The report "Zen Driving" , conducted by consulting firms Prevensis Security, quantifies how much driving is affected by various emotional stress. For example, discuss with the co-pilot reduces the driver's attention by 26%. .. ie, reduced to the same percentage like 0.5 grams per liter of blood.

If in addition to talking on the phone while driving, the conversation that we maintain is particularly tense, the care setting decreases 41% , and when we have an altercation with another driver, fell at 37%. Prevensis manager, Jesus Gomez, is clear: "We drive drugged by our emotions."

The study of Prevensis, which is sponsored by the bosses of insurers Unespa - also trace the profile of the driver with better emotional control: a married man between 37 and 50 years, whereas the most excitable at the wheel is the single man less than 32 years, especially if is under 25. It seems that it is best to be married and that the report qualifies as a clueless single drivers and divorcees as "rushed". The study responsalbes profile attribute the overall negative for women with strong emotions while driving: input is negative for 33% . And, while for men with this negative attitude the emotional consequence is the feeling of anger, among the women is more widespread insecurity and fear emotions.

Likewise, there are aspects of the movement which alone make us more nervous and lead us to lose emotional control: a car "glued" to the back of our own, a situation that followed jams, the rush and cars trying to sneak ahead of us.

To drive more relaxed, and therefore safer, Prevensis recommended techniques as a walk around the car before we get to the controls, create a phrase that encourages us and while running, take advantage of the inertia of the vehicle.
