New Study Claims That Women Are Better Drivers Than Men
According to this study, women are better and safer drivers than men.
Could the jokes about women's driving abilities be coming to an end? This study revealed women to be better and safer drivers than men. The study was conducted by the insurance comparison website Confused.com and analyzed drivers in the UK.
The research found that 539,000 individuals were convicted for breaking the law while driving in England or Wales in 2018. Out of them, 79% were men, outnumbering females by nearly 4:1.
The study also found that men are more likely to commit the most common motoring offenses, with a quarter of offenses being recorded due to men speeding. Men were also found to be five times more likely to be convicted for drink-driving, and twice as likely to be found at fault when making an insurance claim.
As expected, bad drivers are unaware of their poor driving skills, not even when the proof is staring them in the face.
Claire Rogan, digital marketing manager at Peter Vardy, has expressed concern over the gap between a driver's records and their assessment of their competency on the road.
"Taking proper due care and attention when behind the wheel should always be at the forefront of our minds when in control of a car, so it is surprising to see our research indicate that over half of British drivers have been penalized for driving offenses.
Whether you have just passed your test, or have been driving for years, it is important to not allow your own perception of your driving skill to cloud your judgment."
1.6 million people across England and Wales took their driving test in 2018, and out of these, 55% failed, with 31% being women and 24% men. Furthermore, out of the 45% who passed, 22% were women while 23% were men.
