Games make drivers go faster

Posted on Sunday, March 04 2007 @ 00:10:40 CET by

In the endless loop of gaming news, we heard gamers are better surgeons, gaming improves vision by up to 20 percent, female gamers have more sex and now BBC reports gamers are more likely to drive faster:
More than a third of young drivers are more likely to go faster on the roads after playing on-screen driving games, a survey suggests.

And 27% of motorists aged 16 to 24 admitted more risk-taking on the road after a gaming session.

A thousand drivers were questioned on behalf of driving school BSM.

BSM's road safety consultant Robin Cummins said the results showed an 'indisputable' link between gaming and dangerous driving.

A quarter of drivers even said they imagine they are in a driving simulation game while driving for real - men are the worst offenders for this.

The poll also found that 34% of the 1,000 young drivers questioned think computer games can improve real-life driving ability, with two in five reckoning the games can help their reflexes.
