Did you know that driving under stress can lead to vehicle damage and a more aggressive and restless driving style?
The symptoms of stress that many people experience in their daily lives can be transferred to various aspects of driving. In particular, stress causes overrun and speeding; This causes more braking and acceleration when driving in the city and the tires and brakes deteriorate due to aggressive driving.
The safety distance is reduced and, therefore, it also brakes more than necessary and with greater abruptness; at the same time, the driver is less alert to possible unforeseen events and the chances of suffering an accident increase considerably.
When driving more aggressively, the driver tends to force the gear change or to change it too late and over-rev the vehicle's engine. With this type of driving, the impeller, transmission and brake system deteriorate much faster.
A driver under stress, in addition, violates more traffic rules and increases the chances of a collision, since he does not put on the flashing lights, does not give way and forgets basic actions such as putting on the seat belt or positioning the rear-view mirrors correctly.
Obviously, when driving more abruptly, the consumption of the car is also higher.
