    I assume you drive a car, in which case you endanger lives every day, just like I do when I drive a car.
    The difference is in your perceived notion you are somehow less of a risk than me.
    Insurance people love people who believe in that.

    I do have the notion that anyone can get into a car accident at any time, with possible deadly consequences, regardless of how they drive.
    It is people who do not have that notion who consider themselves immune, because they "drive safe".

    You can kill at 50 and at 150, don't ever forget that.
    Much easier to avoid the situation at 50 though.

    I know too easy of a concept for you to understand?????

    Common sense gets lost in the translation there Hans??????

    There is another voice of reason that says not to get into "the situation" to begin with is the way to go.

    Not getting into the situation in the first place is what they teach in defensive driving courses. They also teach you to respect the rules of the road.

    Driving fast does not make you a good driver.

    When you can put a 50 Ton Rock Truck into 1/2 the places I have, then I will consider you a good driver.

    I was simply stating that when you drive a car, you have to accept you might get into an accident with possible loss of life, regardless of how well of a driver you consider yourself to be.
    Accidents can happen to anybody, especially those who think it will not happen to them.

    I have driven extensively on the German highway, where there is no speed limit.
    I am used to traveling 700 Km in 3 hours.
    Never have gotten into an accident in my life, and have been driving for 29 years.

    I am sure that must count for something also.
    Truth is as a fast driver you have to pay extra attention to all the little details.

    In a way that is true, in a way it is not.

    If you would not have gotten into a car you would not have gotten into a car accident.
