SORRY LADIES: WOMEN REALLY ARE WORSE DRIVERS THAN MEN

BALTIMORE, Md. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The old stereotype of women being lousier drivers than men may, in fact, be reality.

A new study in the upcoming issue of the medical journal, Epidemiology, reveals that female drivers average about 5.7 crashes per million miles driven compared to only 5.1 crashes for male drivers.

To be fair, the research does show that women have fewer fatal crashes than men – but that’s only because they drive 74 percent fewer miles than men.

Before you ladies get your gears out of whack, there is some good news: women drivers under the age of 20 and older than 35 have a slightly lower risk of being involved in a crash then males in the same age groups.
