Analysis of the Possibilities to Reduce Accidents of Inexperienced Drivers

Abstract—Drivers generally tend to underestimate the risks involved with driving, and overestimate their driving skills and capabilities. Young drivers are especially at fault in that they have not been sensitized to the determinants of accident risks and are less able to judge what levels of risk are acceptable. A possible solution would be a change to the educational and training methodologies practiced in driving schools and training centers.  Teaching focused on scanning and anticipating situations within a visual range and range of vision might help trainees reduce the risk of being involved in an accident. For example, trainees could be made aware of safe driving distances by the use of simulators. Higher attention could also be paid to the development of safe driving strategies, hazard recognition and higher order skills. 

Index Terms—Defensive driving, following interval, tailgating, traffic accidents, safe distance.
