That moment when you instinctively crank the radio when your favourite song comes on may make your ride more exciting, but does it influence your driving?
According to a study we commissioned, it may depend on what genre of music you're listening to. In fact, your preferred music style may also shine a light on what type of driver you are and your driving record, including which listeners are most likely to get speeding tickets or be charged with more serious offences like careless driving and DUI's.
Life In The Fast Lane
Sure, everyone does it occasionally; drive faster than they should. As commonplace as speeding is, there are some who appear to be prone to it. Can you guess who? That's right, drivers who listen to Talk Radio! Almost half of the drivers who listen to Talk Radio (49%), followed closely by Metal listeners (48%), have had 1-3 speeding tickets, versus 40% of the driving population.
Interestingly, Talk Radio doesn't make the speed demon list for drivers with four or more speeding tickets. Drivers with this many tickets are more likely to be fans of R&B which takes the lead at 16%, followed by Classic Rock listeners (12%) and Country listeners (11%).
