Good thread. I agree to the remarks safety is more important and concentration plays an important part. Music is very distractive and one should exercise restraint and control in listening while driving. Whenever I drive in highways at higher speed, I just ignore music and concentrate on my driving only.

I completely agree with you on this. Now that I am nearing 40 I normally change to calmer music if I realise that my speed is increasing due to music.

I am a rash driver by nature and have to take a lot of controlling measures to keep my inner self in reigns. Changing music or switching it off completely is one of them.

The speed of my car is directly proportional to
1) The speed of my thoughts rather than the music when I am in what I call AUTO mode. The music though may influence the pace of thoughts.
2) When driving with concentration the speed is for me directly proportional to the quality and strength of my brakes rather than engine as it is a matter of confidence.

Thank you for all your responses above!. It's interesting to know different opinions of the members.

There was a time when I would never start my car before the music on the system. To me it gave a background music for my driving very similar to what music does in the operation theater in a hospital. However, this would sometimes get louder depending on the genre of the music. My choice was Hard / Heavy Rock about 10 years ago, however it changed to more soothing music like Jazz and Classical over the time.
Now I prefer the music to be only at a low decibel level.
