Just thought i'd post a link to a recent study by the BSM Driving School in the UK, suggesting that if you play driving games on the PC you may indeed be a more dangerous driver.
Over one third (34%) of young male and female drivers confess they are more likely to drive faster on roads shortly after indulging in on-screen driving action and a quarter (27%) of young drivers admit they take greater driving risks after a gaming session.For the real laughs though you need to scroll down to the BSM's tips on how to stay safe! Apparantly "being a great driver in real life doesn't automatically make you a gaming champion - so don't behave like you're King of the Road, just because you've achieved a record score in a game." (!!)
The study, by the UK's largest driving school, BSM, shows nearly a quarter (22%) of young drivers even claim they have imagined they're in a driving simulation game while driving on the UK's roads.
