34. Emotional Tension

Your emotional state influences your ability to concentrate, stay alert, be courteous, think clearly and rapidly, contain anger and aggressiveness, and control tendencies to "show off."

Safe driving requires all your concentration If you are preoccupied with your emotions, you will not be able to focus on the task of driving safely. Therefore, you should not drive if you are under severe tension, emotionally distressed (e.g., depressed, angry or upset), or otherwise preoccupied with your emotions, thoughts or personal problems.

Being late to work or to an appointment can also cause you to become stressed, and hence drive unsafely. Being late for an event is not an excuse to drive poorly. The few minutes you may make up by weaving in and out of traffic or by speeding are unlikely to make a difference anyway. The best thing to do is just accept the fact that you are going to be late, and plan better next time to avoid finding yourself in the same situation.
