Mindfulness can benefit us in many aspects of our lives. It is a win-win situation, on and off the road. Practicing mindfulness leads to better driving, and also better performance and relationships. When applied to driving, being mindful can increase driver performance, and decrease emotional reactivity and negative attitudes. Hence, mindful drivers engage in safer driving practices compared to non-mindful drivers, along with more positive attitudes towards road situations, and reduced likelihood of intentional (e.g. violations) and unintentional (e.g. errors) behaviours.
