It's true, what you say, and yet, at the same time, it is a HUGE
The Autobahn has drivers everyday who risk heavy fines by not
complying with lane discipline, and there are plenty of MAJOR
accidents, and scores of citations which bear this out.
Second, you fail to take into account the broad spectrum of traffic
flow patterns; ranging from dense metro traffic to sparse rural
traffic. You fail to take into account that each requires a totally
different approach to driving. What works in the city does not work in
the country, and vice versa. You fail to take into account the
composition of the drivers; young, old, experience, new, etc.
And you fail to note that the Autobahn is not without speed limits
imposed as it approaches metropolitan zones. That 911 must slow down
and comply with everyone else.
Twenty years of law enforcement has shown me that there is a wide
range of reasons for accidents. Lane discipline is only one factor.
