Recently, price comparison site Confused.com analysed statistics on insurance, crime rates and driving test results to determine once and for all which gender is the most superior on wheels.
When it came to driving offences, just 21 per cent of women had broken the law compared to 79 per cent of men. The most common culprits? Speeding (24 per cent) and driving without insurance (17 per cent.)
Male motorists have a lot of explaining to do as far as on-road etiquette goes, too: almost one in four (23 per cent) admitted to not indicating when switching lanes, while this was true for just one in six (17 per cent) of women. Men were also more likely to tailgate another driver. But that’s not all. Blokes were almost twice as likely to make a car insurance claim than women - and be at fault. Bottom line? Men cost insurers more when they make a claim, making us by far the safer sex.
...There were a few categories where men did outshine women, however. They were more likely to pass their driving test on the first go and were less likely to drive in bare feet. You win some, you lose some eh?
