DRIVE THAT FAST: New research, that old standby of a bank holiday week, suggests that driving while listening to loud, up-tempo music can be dangerous. A Canadian study has suggested that it can take a fifth as long to complete basic tasks if you've got the beats pumped up - at 95 decibels, reaction times plummet.
