There's been a study done by the Roads research centre in the UK about why their are more accidents in the summer. It turns out that heat is directly linked to levels of serotonin. There are also more road rage attacks.

All of which suggests to me that cortisol gets raised, which in turn affects serotonin. Cortisol getting raised in hot weather kind of makes sense - after all it's an anti-inflammatory, and what does heat do, if not "inflame" us.

This sounds good to me, I know just last weeks someone about 60 miles from us got shot because of road rage, of course you see more of this in the summer times. I think it is hot people get frustrated and like you said the cortisol begins to raise.

Anyhow, just trying to say it does make sense.
