Statistically, experienced drivers aged between 45 and 54 have the best reaction ability.
It is the brain, not the foot, which determines how long it takes before you apply the brakes when something unexpected happens on the road in front of you. The time it takes is called reaction time and is determined by your reaction ability – the better reaction ability you have, the shorter your reaction time.
Readiness for action, a defensive driving style and high risk awareness combined with a lot of experience are crucial for a good reaction ability.
