34. Emotional Tension

Your emotional state influences your ability to:

  • concentrate
  • stay alert
  • be courteous
  • think clearly and rapidly
  • contain anger and aggressiveness
  • control tendencies to show off for your friends

Safe driving requires all your concentration. If you are preoccupied with your emotions, you will not be able to focus on 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 drive unsafely. But the few minutes you may make up by weaving in and out of traffic or by speeding are unlikely to make a difference. The best thing to do is just accept that you are going to be late, and plan better to avoid being late again.
