What are the safest and most dangerous songs to drive to?
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- If you need to be a safer driver, maybe you need to change the music you listen to.
Researchers at London Metropolitan University analyzed experiments involving drivers and different playlists. They found, as you might expect, that noisy, upbeat music can make you concentrate more on the music than on the road, and make you subconsciously drive faster.
They recommend soft rock, over rap and heavy metal.
So here are the top 10 'safest songs' to drive to, according to the report.
