How Work Stress Is Causing Car WrecksNEW YORK – Stress is a dangerous reaction. It can make you gain weight, it can keep you up at night, and it can even increase your risk of heart disease. Now, researchers say you can add another risk to that list: stress can cause car crashes.

According to a new study, people who have more work stress than others are more likely to have something bad happen on their way home from the office.

Although commute times differ on location, the average working American is in their car an average of 26 minutes, each way, per day. That’s a lot of time behind the wheel!

Researchers found that those either going to work or coming home from work were also more likely to be thinking about work – distracting them from the task at hand: driving. The more work stresses you out, the more you think about it, and according to researchers, those distractions could make you a dangerous driver.

However, stress comes in many forms. Some stresses cause drivers to take more risks.

The top cause of stress-related crashes was caused by difficulty balancing work and family life, the study found.

Those struggling to find a work-life balance were more likely to be on the phone or take risks like speeding, tailgating, or other dangerous maneuvers.

Having a bad boss was also found to be a bad trigger. Those who said they hated their boss were found to be risky on the road.

If You’re Injured By a Dangerous Driver

Stress can certainly make people do some crazy things – especially on the road. Unfortunately, a stressed-out driver can also be responsible for a person’s injuries if they aren’t careful on the road.
