Now there's proof that women are the superior drivers.
A new study released recently by Carrentals UK, suggest that women are superior drivers after interviewing more than 700 people.
"While men would like to believe they are better than women behind the steering wheel, it is clear to see that male drivers performed worse in terms of speeding fines and penalty points," said Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals UK.
Indeed. Survey results included:
- 57 per cent of men had been involved in one or more accidents compared to 44 per cent of women
- 45 per cent of 36- to 45-year-old and men over 65 years old had been caught speeding
- 60 per cent of men over 65 had been involved in an accident, compared to 30 per cent of women in the same age group.
"(M)en consistently rated their driving skills higher than women when asked," Robinson said. "It seems that, while men performed poorly on the questionnaire and typically had a worse track record on the roads, they believed that they were good drivers."
