Hmm, I don't think I have recently written any article on this topic, so I'm not sure which one you may be referring to. Panic attacks may not in fact usually be life-threatening or dangerous, but they usually feel as though they are, and would indeed be highly distracting if they occurred while one was driving a car. That's why it is wise to see a shrink and start effective treatment asap, as medication and CBT counselling can help you gain control of it fairly rapidly.
