Another cause of accidents is that dangers are often not perceived as such or are misjudged. This by no means only applies to new drivers who are still learning to recognise dangerous situations, it also concerns experienced drivers.
People make misjudgements not only in complex situations, but also in straightforward situations on daily, well-known routine routes. The majority of accidents on motorways and expressways happen near where people live, on their doorstep, so to speak. Two thirds of accidents happen within a radius of 50 kilometres from home.
No matter how routine the journey, driving is always risky and not something you do in passing. It requires concentration and everyone taking their own safety and the safety of others seriously.
