i really want to see that statistic! with total number of male and female drivers, total number of accidents etc…
slower and over cautious doesn’t mean “Better”!

PS: if women are in general better drivers than men… why Schumacher, Vettel, Rossi are males?! It’s because women are oppressed, right?! give me a break!

A report no doubt collated by a woman. I have known some appalling women drivers and likewise appalling male drivers. On the other hand some good male and female drivers. I very much doubt there is much difference between them and this report or study, call it what you will, is just some feminist trying to make a point. It if was a male saying the opposite there would be a hue and cry over it!

Some women are better drivers than men , I know some who are excellent drivers in every respect and fast too .
However many women are fearful , over cautious and some are inattentive ; these are drivers that may not be involved directly in accidents , but may be the cause of others to have accidents , through their slowness or perhaps weaving while doing their makeup or hair while looking in the rear view mirror .

Anyway it’s only my opinion .

But in general, if men are overrepresented in anything (entrepreneurs, engineering) and you would dare to say this is because they are ‘better’…you are deemed a sexist, same if it is a racial thing (white countries have a higher development level) then to attribute it to ‘better race’ is considered beyond the pale.
