After the next time you have a video game fest then hop in the car and be sure to pay attention to how fast you're driving. More than a third of young drivers are more likely to go faster on the roads after playing on-screen driving games, according to the BBC [1].

Apparently, 27 percent of motorists aged 16 to 24 admitted more risk-taking on the road after a gaming session. The poll also found that 34 percent of the 1,000 young drivers questioned think computer games can improve real-life driving ability, with two in five reckoning the games can help their reflexes.

So what about you, do video games get your adrenaline pumping?
