Discount accident

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A discount accident is the slang term for a car accident with property or personal injury , which usually occurs in the early morning hours of the weekend nights and is caused by people returning from the disco or party.


The causes of discount accidents can be risky driving style, showing off, inadequate driving experience or the consumption of alcohol and drugs . People from the so-called risk group of 18 to 25-year-old novice drivers are often involved. Statistically speaking, it is mostly young, drunk men who cause discount accidents.


The police and traffic watch are trying to reduce the number of accidents with awareness-raising campaigns and increased police checks. Many municipalities and cities offer taxi vouchers or discounted public transport for disco goers to reduce the risk of these traffic accidents. There are companies that offer regional trips home in their own car after a visit to the disco.
