But also phrases like "I'm feeling very hot tonight" which in Britain would give the impression that you've got your pecker set on a timer.
Or what about you waiting on somebody, which in Britain would give the impression that you're sitting on somebody whilst waiting. We are actually waiting for somebody.
Or hey engineer, won't you let your engine blow. Even though technically it's correct, in Britain the question would be "will you let your engine blow".
And Clint Eastwood's "go ahead punk, make my day"..?
In Britain: proceed young man, to enhance my enjoyment for the forthcoming 24 hours.

What a terrible accident. Was the driver under influence? He was driving too fast and did not seem to seriously attempt to brake even after he crashed.

edit: I see it happened in Bușteni, which is in a mountainous region. Perhaps the brakes failed.

That happened to me with English. I find many different reasons:
- the one you said
- since I like to use a "rich" Italian, I'd like to do the same with English: so I try to compose more complex sentences, which opens up the road to much more mistakes
- I also tend to speak/write faster
- I also get in contact, and use, slang forms which may be in contrast with proper grammar
- a glitch that happens to me often, when I get aware of a mistake driven by habitude, and I'm aware I should act in a way different than usual: I unconsciously apply the new (correct) behaviour, but then I remember I should to things differently... and turn it to the wrong way So, with a foreign language, I might do mistakes I didn't to before because the proper way seems too straightforward and I recall I should change something...

But probably the main reason is... the more we learn, the better we recognize mistakes we didn't notice before. Pretty much Occam's razor
