    Default Driving with the music OFF...

    Ok, this might just be me being deep and too thoughtful, but last night i drove home for 40 minutes with no music on. I realised that I just never do that, and driving seems completely different when you actually listen to whats going on around you, and the noises your car makes.

    I think that I drove a lot smoother, was a tad more aware, and thought about what I was doing so much more. It was almost theraputic!

    Is it true that we (drivers) just never drive without listening to something other than the road?

    Sorry if this is cobblers..

    (p.s I also realised I have developed the amazingly annoying squeeky seat syndrome..)

    I ALWAYS drive with the music off... I NEVER have the radio turned on !!

    The only time music is played in our car... is when Diana puts on one of her 'girly' albums...

    But when I'm out on my own... its always turned off...

    I find that loud music is one of the quickest ways to ensure you crash the car, as its too distracting....

    I'm just weird though with things like that.... ... in the same way as I dont drink 'hot' drinks... only cold.... and I dont mind letting my food go cold before I eat it.... and I like my porridge with bananas....weird

    I very rarely drive with the music on in the car for reasons mentioned above - you just don't hear what's going on around you. If I'm cruising on the motorway on a long journey, I may pop it on for a bit - but not blaring away. If I go out for a blast it's always, always turned off, windows often part down to hear better - as well as to hear that lovely exhaust and pttssh of the turbo!
