However, a person who doesn’t drive that often might not be as experienced with how to navigate traffic, bad weather, or other conditions.

The accident rate (number of personal injury accidents related to the number of vehicle-kilometres) and the accident density (number of personal injury accidents related to the length of a road section) are used mainly in the field of black spot identification and analysis, and for the comparison of accident risk on different road categories. In May , the European Commission is scheduled to review Directive /62/EC for the third time since its inception. This piece of legislation, known commonly as the Eurovignette Directive, sets the parameters by which EU member states can toll trucks for their use of road infrastructure.
