There's this term used by Germans, which basically means...."Ghost Driver". For an American, it's an odd phrase, and needs some explanation.
To get onto a German autobahn....there's a entrance, and to get off....there is an exit. Both have signs and it's more than obvious.
Well....there are Germans who typically drink a bit and aren't grasping the entrances. So you have some guy who will enter an autobahn on the exit area, and then travel down the autobahn. Sometimes....oncoming traffic will avoid the guy and things turn out ok. Most of the time....someone crashes into the guy, and lives are lost.
As far as I know....there aren't statistics collected on this....or the cops just don't want to publish these. If you asked me how often it occurs in Germany....I'd take a humble guess of six to ten times a year.
Are there people who commit suicide by ghost driving? Yes. This has occurred....once in fact by an American in the Kaiserslautern community.
So when you hear the odd phrase, and you've translated it over....to ghost driver....you know the general meaning.
