Listening to heavy metal while driving could make your lead-foot a bit heavier, according to researchers.


A new study done by IAM Raodsmart and Auto Express showed the influence of different types of music on driver behavior. The survey showed Classical Music had a calming effect on drivers and actually caused some to drive slower, Pop Music was in the middle and Heavy Metal was shown to make drivers a tad more aggressive and drivers would travel at increased speeds while having Metal blasting through the speakers.


What we learned: if you’re in a rush, don’t let Jesus take the wheel, let Slayer.
