Women Are Better Drivers Than Men, New Study Says



Comparing data from the UK Ministry of Justice, the DVLA and private records, Confused.com came to the conclusion that women are actually better drivers than their male counterparts. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

As it turns out, figures indicate that women are slower when it comes to learning how to drive. But once they do, they’re more reliable behind the wheel because they commit fewer offenses, are involved in fewer accidents and, as such, cost insurers less than men do.

If that’s what makes a good driver, then women are it.

According to the figures, men are 4 times more likely to break the law in one way or another when they’re driving. Of the 585,000 cases of drivers taken to court in England and Wales in 2017, 79 percent were men.

Most men are guilty of speeding, drink-driving offenses and driving without tax or insurance. By comparison, the percentage of women who do the same is almost half of the number of male drivers guilty of these offenses.

The same disparity is noticeable when it comes to insurance claims: in 2017, 65 percent insurance claims were made by men, of which 17 percent represented incidents where the claimant was at fault. Of the 35 percent of claims made by women, only 9 percent were incidents were the claimant was at fault.

“As a female racing driver, I know women can hold their own when it comes to driving, and data suggests that they are in fact safer on the roads,” Amanda Stretton, motoring editor at Confused.com, says of the findings of the study.

“This is reflected in the fact that they are paying almost Ł100 less for their premiums. And this could be down to the fact that more men committed more motoring offenses in comparison to women. Not only this, but they also often own more expensive cars, which means claims are likely to be more expensive,” she adds.

Bovine detritus.
I hate statistical implications when the baseline is not the same.

It is not a like for like comparison.
There are good and bad drivers for both genders,
but one thing I have NEVER witnessed...
A bloke batting the eyelids to get out of a minor knock/driving offense.

Now, if they produce statistics for same model of car, mileage, road type,
I might be more inclined to a statistical outcome.

I did the male equivalent by making the correct submissive male characteristics when pulled over on my Moto Guzzi by a bike cop. Yes sir, no sir, three bags full sir and he gave me a telling off and sent me on my way.

The spouse and I have no traffic tickets in 20+ years. What I will add is that when we travel, I'm behind the wheel 90% of the time. There's an infamous line about statistics though - "70% of automobile accidents happen within 10 miles of where you live, so just park your car 10.5 miles away to be safe." Drops the part about 70% of your driving is within 10 miles of your house.

It's all very well to save points and a fine - but it can leave a nasty taste in one's mouth...

One thing I've found regarding female drivers is that they have little or no spacial awareness!!!
