WTF: Study Says Rap Music Causes Car Crashes

Allhiphop reports:

A new study in the U.K. has found that drivers who listen to Hip-Hop music are most at risk to be involved in an accident.

A survey of 2000 people conducted by Auto Trader magazine found that almost half of the drivers admitted that rap music changed their mood while driving.

Additionally the survey found that 1 in 5 drivers became aggressive, while listening to songs by rappers like Eminem, Jay-Z, Dizzee Rascal.

Only six percent of the drivers became relaxed while listening to the genre of music.

"We all know the drivers who play loud, pounding rap music where you can hear the ground shake before they arrive,” said Neil Grieg, Director of Policy and Research of The Institute of Advanced Motorists.

Grieg told ANI News Service that police do not note what type of music a driver is listening to when they are involved in collisions.

"If people recognize within themselves that they were listening to a certain type of music when they had road rage problems or crashes, it would be worth them considering changing the music," Grieg said. "But if you listen to rap music in the car, you are most likely to be young and male and unfortunately that is the target group least likely to listen to road safety advice.”

Okay! there are always accidents, no matter what!!! they are now doing this so called "study" and they are asking people what kind of music they were listening to while they were driving and most of them said Rap music. Umm! don't you think rap is so popular now days that a lot of more people is listening to it. I bet that if they did this study when Elvis music or Rock was famous as it was, the same result would come out, the only difference is that they wouldn't publish it I've been driving and listening to rap while I drive for over 10 years and I haven't get into an accident.
