Such a conclusion can be drawn from the study of the operator UBI telematics Technologies, which analyzed the driving behavior of car owners who have taken leasing in Russia cars of the premium class in the past year.
Road rage: the owner of a BMW rammed hinder the overtaking pickup
the Most frequent participants in traffic accidents were cars Audi. They accounted for 12.9 percent of all accidents with this brand. BMW took second place. They accounted for 11.7 per cent of accidents . However, it is worth considering that leasing companies equip their cars with telematic equipment, which allows to set the driving style. The driver accelerated sharply and dramatically slows, makes a sharp changeover and turns – all this can be seen with satellite precision. Because control over the movement of the car occurs on the GLONASS, GPS, Galileo and Beidou. It is, in fact, the satellite constellation of different countries. About GLONASS and GPS know all. Galileo is the European satellite constellation, Beidou – China. That is, the driver has no possibility to be in the shade.
So, according to the company that conducted the survey, BMW drivers do not change their aggressive style of driving even after the accident their fault. From all this material we can conclude that the car itself dictates behavior on the road. The same Audi A6 meets all the characteristics of the BMW 5-series. However, after the accident, the owners of these cars start to drive more carefully. And owners of BMW – no.
it is Noteworthy that the most careful drivers are those who acquired the lease of the Mercedes-Benz S-class and Maybach. However, this is easily explained. Typically, these luxury cars are becoming just in order to carry important persons. Cases of reckless driving are recorded when these persons are late to the airport.
