There are many different opinions on the subject matter of male vs. female driving. But one major topic of the discussion is accidents.
According to vehicleinsure.com, between March of 2001 and March of 2002, there were at least twice as many males involved in crashes than women. This means that more men are dying in car accidents than women. Statistics collected by The Institute of Highway Safety showed that in 2009, nearly 12,000 men died due to traffic accidents compared to less 5,000 women. Anne McCartt, the Institute’s senior vice president of research said, “Men take more risks behind the wheel than women, and so men are more likely to get into serious crashes.”
Furthermore, as a rule of thumb, male drivers are more likely to break the law and tend to be more of a risk taker. “It’s almost scary how bad the average American man is at driving,” Says 4autoinsurancequote CEO James Shaffer. In a study done from April 2001 to March 2002 by the Institute of Highway Safety,
For the one trillion, three hundred twenty- four billion, three hundred seventy three million, nine hundred seventy thousand, six hundred and eighty two miles traveled by men, there were thirty three thousand, seven hundred and thirty three crash involvements.
And for the eight hundred forty seven billion, seven hundred thirty four million, nine hundred thirty one thousand, and ninety seven miles traveled by women, there were 14, 633 crash involvements.
“It’s true that men do take more risks than women,” says Carolyn Gorman, vice president of the insurance information quote. “However, women are partaking in more risky behaviors than ever before. The gap is closing quickly.”
