September 19, 2019

The next time you driving through a congested highway you might not want to listen to these songs. 

A study by Moneybarn, Britain’s vehicle finance provider showed that songs with a BPM (beats per minute) greater than 120 may have a negative impact on drivers, resulting in faster driving speeds and more traffic violations. Their study also found that loud volumes are believed to increase reaction times and heart rate.

Moneybarn surveyed the 96 most popular tracks on Spotify. They were able to identify that Green Day’s ‘American Idiot’ was the most dangerous to listen to while driving, followed by Miley Cyrus’s 'Party in the U.S.A.'
