Driver Safety

Are men or women better drivers?

First, let me say that the term “better” driver can mean different things. So, let’s look at some of those different things.

Also, I thought this would be easy to find an answer to. I mean, facts are facts, right? But, what I found instead were statistics on all kinds of different details of men and women drivers. The reason I point that out is that 89.7% of all statistics are made up.

I could easily find information that supported the “fact” (I use that term loosely) that men are better drivers. However, I found more information that said women are better drivers.

One thing that I found that was interesting (and consistent) is that women seem to have a much higher percentage of accidents with other women. Now, this has nothing to do with the men vs. women driving stats. I just thought that was odd.

Most of the information was kind of dated. I do believe the number of women drivers are increasing every year which may change current statistics.
