Remaining cool behind the steering wheel

Remaining cool, calm and collected whenever you get behind the steering wheel may well help you stay out of accidents. A recent study by scientists at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Canada indicates that drivers who tend to be aggressive and easily angered are more likely to be involved in collisions than those who keep their emotions in check. After surveying over 12,000 people, the researchers found that "even minor aggression, such as swearing, yelling or making rude gestures, can increase the risk of a collision".
