Can Car Scent Keep You Safe On CA Roads?

Published Jul 18th 2013, 1:56pm by Patty Streeter in



Here's a travel tip that'll I'll bet you didn't know, and, it might keep you safer...

The average American commuter in CA spends two and a half hours daily in their car.

The government says a hundred thousand auto accidents yearly are caused by drivers who fall asleep at the wheel. (Aggressive driving is the number one traffic safety concern.)

So what does this have to do with how your car smells while you're driving around CA?

Well, which scent did you think makes drivers more alert?

Is it:
  • A. Strawberry
  • B. New Car
  • C. Pine
  • D. Warm Vanilla Breeze

It's C. Drivers are more alert and have less fatigue with pine scent in the car, according to AroMetrics.

And, drivers were less angry with overall improved driving performance with strawberry and pine scents.

And you thought they just smelled nice.
