Study: Racing games may spur risky driving

According to a new study by German researchers (who also make damn fine automobiles), people who play racing games with realistic driving environments are more likely to get into an actual wreck than those who don't play video games. The study questioned 198 men on women on their willingness to take driving risks. The ones that played driving games ended up taking greater risks and were more prone to reckless driving according to the study. Believe it or not.
