Yes, Germans get a great deal more classroom and practical lessons before obtaining a driver's license(much more expensive too). This makes it a valuable item that they would be loathe to lose.
But the reality is that while they may have fewer crashes per capita when they do crash on the Autobahn it is Spectacular (see Deadly).
