My teenager just started to drive and I’m trying to make rules to keep him safe in the car. We’ve addressed things like using a cell phone while driving and drinking and driving. Is it also important to address what kind of music he listens to in order to keep him safe from Milwaukee auto accidents?

A recent study from the London Metropolitan University finds that music can impact how safely a person drives. Specifically, the study found that the faster the song, the faster a person is likely to drive. Music that was closer to a person’s heartbeat rhythm was considered safer than music with significantly faster beats.

While specific songs were included in the London Metropolitan University study, the specific songs may not be important to review with your child. Instead, you want your son to be aware of how music may influence his driving and to make independent judgments about individual songs. You want him to recognize that if he tends to speed when a faster song comes on that the song should be immediately turned off. You want your son to realize that driving safely is his only priority when he is behind the wheel and that nothing else matters.

Sometimes even the best teen drivers will be involved in a crash through no fault of their own. If your child has been hurt by another driver’s negligence, then you need to know what to do to protect your child’s rights.
