It’s a scenario that unfortunately happens far too often: a scooter driver without a license, who is drunk or under the influence of narcotics, gets behind the wheel of his vehicle and takes to the roads. The consequences can be devastating, not only for the driver himself, but also for other road users.
But why do some people take this risk? In many cases it is simply ignorance or a false assessment of one’s own abilities. But the fact that a driver’s license in Germany comes at a high cost and requires a considerable amount of time also drives some to break the law.
