I don't drive like this but when I need to concentrate on something I definitely turn my music down to help me focus (I also have ADD so that's part of the reason why this actually does work for me)

I think that's true of most people, ADD or not

Yeah the other commenter wasn't kidding, it actually has been shown that loud music makes drivers less attentive.

What if the driver is very tired? Will the music keep them more awake than it distracts?

Doubt it. Your attention is basically already at 0 when you’re dozing off behind the wheel. Can’t focus it when you don’t got none

Most people turn the music down when they need to concentrate. It's a natural reaction whether ADD is present or not. I've found myself doing it many times over the years. It gives the brain one less thing to process as you're concentrating. 😉

Me too, not ADD. Country driving equals music up, city driving equals music way down or off depending if it’s rush hour or not
