Since the creation of cars, women have taken flake for being poor drivers. Women and Men blame a poor driver as a female driver. However, science has proven that women are better drivers because they drive more cautiously. They also have to endure a lot more distractions in the car than men. Men can handle the car better in regards to reaction to a incident. So on the whole, both sexes drive well, and it does depend who is behind the well from a person point - not a gender point!
I am a woman driver, but I would like to see any female.... back a semi into a narrow loading dock like the truckies do! I stand and watch at my local shopping centre, just amazed at the way these guys do it.
Sure you will get bad male drivers, but when it comes to hours on the road, and skill set's MEN have it down-pat.
I have driven for 41 years, never had a accident once, and I have seen a lot of really bad male drivers, but far worse are some female drivers.
It's just how the brain works, and in this case....men win hands down, in my opinion.
I think it comes down to the individual and how much attention they are paying to the task at hand. Maybe women have a bad reputation because they more often have kids in their car to distract them? I used to drive limos and did just as good a job as the men (in my own humble opinion).
