There are 2.5 million active drivers in Bulgaria aged 18 to 75. 95 percent of road accidents are caused by driver errors, said Malina Krumova, chair of the Road Safety State Agency in her presentation of the Safe Drive Index.

This is a sign that risks on the road are underestimated and are frequently not identified, comment the team members who drafted the report
