Whos better at driving? Male or Female?

Ok Who is better at driving? This is going to be a crazy thread. I like to say there are some females that cant drive worth a crap. Also there is alot of men who cant drive.

What bugs me the most is when a girl is on her phone and driving a big ass lifted truck.

Whos better at driving? Male or Female?

I've seen the worst imaginable drivers from both sexes. I don't think its a male/female issue. Some people are just not good at concentrating, or what have you.

I saw a person eating a meal (from McDonald's.. I could see the bag), while driving and talking to the person in the next seat. I've also seen people with reading material on their steering wheel in traffic. I don't see too many ladies doing makeup while driving, but I'd almost rather they did that than yap on the cell phone. That's not to say guys don't have cell phone issues as well.

I'll preface my response by saying that I got my info from a discovery channel special detailing the differences between men and women. I am not trying to be a chauvinist.

With that said, men are better drivers, generally speaking. On the above mentioned show, they had a bunch of men and women parallel park the same car in the same place. On average, the men parked in significantly less time and hit the cars in front of and behind them less times.

The reason for this is that women's and men's brains function very differently. It has been proven that men generally have better depth perception and mechanical inclination than women do while women are better communicators than men are. Thus, most men are better drivers than most women.

Of course there are exceptions to every rule and this is no different. There are some excellent femal drivers out there and some horrible male drivers.

Fight on!

Most women in general are useless...

And most men over the age of 55 are useless too.

Old people that drive are not that good. Over the age of 60 or so.

What woman dumped you? I've noticed a majority of women-hater posts lately are from you.

Who's better at driving? Entirely debateable and it's based on individual drivers. does better=safer or just more in tune with the road? According to insurance companies men are not as safe as men, thus higher rates. Men get married and their rates go down, b/c the assumption is that they will drive safer (better?) after marriage.
In my marriage I would say I was the better driver just b/c I paid attention to the situations that were happening on the road. I can't tell you the number of times my ex almost got us into an accident b/c he wasn't paying attention to things that weren't in his "zone".
I'm not saying females are better drivers, just throwing some information out there. Most of my complaints are about female drivers though.

You are correct more men have accidents than women because there's 75% more men driving on the road .

I'm not really saying ALL women drivers, I think it's just the city were I live in. There's the "lets drive 10 km/h under the speed limit to be cautious" drivers and then there's the people who are so old they fucking make up their own rules like not indicating, going through lights as they please et cetera.

I believe teenaged girls are the worst 'cause for most of them as soon as you add in one more person into the car they become pyschotic drivers!
