Driving While Emotionally Upset
While most people view driving while under the influence as being something that is both dangerous and extremely ill advised, most of these same people would not think twice about getting behind the wheel when they are extremely upset. But the reality is that being extremely angry, sad, or frustrated can have similar effects on driving as being drunk does.
If a driver is visually upset and crying or yelling, they should not be driving. He or she is not only a threat to him or herself but to all those on the road.

Points at Which Driving Can Be Very Dangerous
There are certain things that happen in our lives that can cause extreme emotions that will likely impair our ability to properly drive a car and pay attention to the road. Examples of instances in which you should call to have someone pick you up rather than drive include:
- After being laid off from a job
- After a break up
- After a serious fight with a loved one
