Women Better Drivers Than Men Study

In lifestyle on May 11, 2013 at 11:47

A Study confirms the fact that women are better Drivers than men,I mean Driving vehicles.

Story:

Men Women Driving Performance Statistics,

Women are Better drivers,

The Answer Is …
In a study released by Quality Planning, an analytics company that validates policyholder information for auto insurers, women came out on top.

The study analyzed different kinds of vehicle code violations (traffic violations) and then compared how many times men were cited versus women. The conclusion was that men break more traffic laws and drive more dangerously than women. Because they violate laws designed to make the roads safer, men cause more accidents and expensive damage.

Who do you think are better drivers: Men or Women?

“We were not surprised to see that men have slightly more violations — about 5 percent — that result in accidents than women,” said Raj Bhat, president of Quality Planning. “And because men are also more likely to violate laws for speeding, passing and yielding, the resulting accidents caused by men lead to more expensive claims than those caused by women.”

Topping the list is the finding that men are cited for reckless driving 3.41 more times than women. Reckless driving is considered one of the most serious traffic offenses by courts since it implies a disregard for the rights and safety of people or property.

Violations for which men scored at least 50 percent higher than women:

TYPE OF VIOLATION RATIO M:F
Reckless driving 3.41
DUI 3.09
Seatbelt violations 3.08
Speeding 1.75
Failure to yield 1.54
Stop sign/signal violation 1.53

Evidence Gets Worse.

Guys, when it rains it pours. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, more men than women die each year in motor vehicle crashes. “Men take more risks behind the wheel than women, and so men are more likely to get into serious crashes,” says Anne McCartt, the institute’s senior vice president of research. “We don’t have any way of comparing their driving abilities, but on the likelihood of getting into a serious crash in which someone dies, men win handily.”

Women, generally, are good decision makers.

Their decision-making is instinctive.
Sometimes they deliberate over the’gut feeling ‘ and take a Deliberate decision:only then the decision goes awry.
Women are wise spenders, not withstanding th jibes at their perceived preferences to Dress and jewelry.
They normally are more empathetic than men.
Their problem solving skills are intuitive.
They are mentally tougher than men.
They ,at times, place themselves and their families over any thing else.
These are the traits I have observed and there are always exceptions.
