According to the traffic police on the number of violations and accidents affects driving experience. In this case, in the first year, after receiving a driver’s license, motorists behave very carefully. The violations they commit are often not serious. People who rent cars are most careful. The high-risk group of traffic police officers call people with driving experience from 3 to 5 years. During this period, there is overconfidence, but a lack of experience. This is the cause of many accidents and violations.
