Some people believe that the exhaustion of a long road trip poses the biggest threat to drivers safety . Other driving situations however are far more dangerous . The sense of relaxation evoked by familiar neighbourhoods induces drivers to rely more on muscle memory and less on active input from their surroundings . Such major lapses in attention are the reason most accidents occur near the home .

Which of the following truly weakens the argument ?

1)Most automobile travel is local

2)Residential streets are more congested

3)Wet payment cause 16% accidents

4) Studys have shown that drivers are far less likely to recall details from local commutes than from long road trips

5) There are fewer car accidents last year than in previous year

Some Believe cause of occurrence of accidents near home is :

1) Exhaustion from long trips

2) Others - carelessness of drivers in neighbourhood

To weaken you need to prove its not either of the above or its some other reason .
