MOTORING TO MOZART: Chilling on the road to a Mozart piano concerto is the way to go, according to Germany's transport minister.

BERLIN, Germany - Germany's transport minister is sharing one of his personal stress-reducers -the slow movements of Mozart's piano concertos - with drivers in the hope the soothing music will help reduce road rage on his nation's autobahns.

A new CD called "Adagio in the Automobile" features the minister, Peter Ramsauer, playing part of Mozart's 'Piano Concerto Nr. 21' accompanied by the orchestra of Berlin's Deutsche Oper.

Ramsauer told the daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that studies have shown slow, classical music has a calming effect on people. He says "many accidents and dangerous traffic situations are due to aggressive drivers" and he hopes the music "will helpto  counter that".

More than 2.4-million accidents were recorded on German roads in 2010.
