Are You In Control?
An emotion is a temporary state of mind which can affect a person’s behaviour.
Emotions can be triggered in a number of ways. For example, a person may be scared by a frightening situation; may be upset after hearing bad news; may be angry after a conversation with a colleague or may be euphoric after a happy surprise.
Being in control of your emotions is a crucial element in safe driving as losing control can lead to risk-taking, mistakes, distracted behaviour, crashes and even altercations with other road users. Some simple techniques can help.
