  • 3. A longer attention span…“Recently, a whole lot of attention has been giving to the dangers oftexting while driving. Prior to that, a huge movement about thedangers of talking on cell phones while driving was conducted.Taking your attention away from the road is definitely a recipe fordisaster, and it stands to reason that those with shorter attention spansare more likely to experience problems in that department.The University of Bradford study suggests that oestrogen tends to givewomen much longer attention spans than men.Despite the popular stereotype of female drivers who apply makeupand perform other frivolous tasks behind the wheel, it is clear thatwomen tend to be able to focus more carefully on important matters.When it comes to driving, this tendency gives them a distinct advantageover men. Quoting the study, “Oestrogens may positively influenceneuronal activity in the frontal lobes, the area of the brain stimulated bytasks of attention and rule learning” CheapCarInsurance.net Image by: JodasÃ¥detatte
  • 4. Aggressive Driving…“Defined as driving in a manner which tend to increase thelikelihood of causing injury or damage to another.Examples, are driving fast, tail gaiting, unwarranted or improperlytimed overtaking, etc. Here are the facts and figures:• Statistically speaking men between the ages of 2o to 30 meet with more vehicular accidents involving speeding and overtaking, than women. Ask any automobile insurance company, ask the DMV or ask your local highway patrol officer and the answer will be the same.• Aggressive behaviour may be brought about by men having more testosterone than women which is known to be a trigger for aggressive behaviour. ” Insure4usa.com Image by: MGSpiller
  • 5. Accidents…Now while anyone could be in need of a touch up after a fender benderor windshield repair after a minor accident, it looks like men do in facthave more accidents than women.“Men get in more accidents than women:• According to a New York City traffic study, 80% of all auto accidents that kill or seriously injure pedestrians involve male drivers.• According to a study by Quality Planning, an insurance statistics company, female drivers were also 27% less likely to be found at fault when involved in an accident.• These statistics tend to hold true no matter where you look. According to the United States Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, men were involved in 6.1 million accidents (40,000 were fatal) in 2007. By comparison, women were only involved in 4.4 million (14,000 were fatal).” 4autoinsurancequote.org Images by: nicolasconnault
  • 6. Women park better…“It has been recently revealed in a report that women drivers tendto have better car parking sense than men.This has been revealed in a new study conducted on the matter. Itwas revealed that women might take a little longer to park theircars, but they are more likely to do the job well.The study has been conducted by researchers from the RuhrUniversity Bochum, situated in Germany. This is one of the firstmost detailed studies conducted on this topic. It was found that women are more adept at finding better parkingplaces and lining their vehicles more accurately andcarefully, avoiding those scratches. Men tend to park their cars in16 seconds, in a hap hazard manner, while women take their ownsweet 26 seconds for the same.” Topnews.us Image by: PixelJones
  • 7. Women break the law less…“In a study released by Quality Planning, ananalytics company that validates policyholderinformation for auto insurers, women cameout 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.• "We were not surprised to see that men have slightly more violations — about 5 percent — that result in accidents than Image by: DavidsonScot15 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 Image by: miss_rogue disregard for the rights and safety of people or property.” Auto.msn
