Well....since we opened our insurance investigation business in 1994, we have investigated roughly 1800 traffic accidents and men tend to outnumber women very, very slightly as far as being found at fault for the accident.

Men tend to get into accidents because of speeding, trying to pass slower drivers, running red lights and driving while intoxicated.

Women, on the other hand, tend to get into accidents because of inattention i.e. cell phones, turning around to yell at children, looking down to find something in their purses and touching up their make-up. They also tend to, um, how can I say this nicely, make up their own traffic rules We just investigated a case of a 20 year old on her way to class, speeding, with a cup of yogurt in her left hand and a spoon in her right hand. She was also driving an unregistered vehicle but that's beside the point.

Believe it or not, in the cases we have handled, we also have a higher ratio of female drivers who have fled the scene of an accident compared to males who have done this.

And, the majority of females in the accident cases that have come through our office have been, on average, 38, married, 2 to 3 children in the vehicle, which almost always happens to be a mini-van or SUV.

So, I'm sorry and I know I'm offending a majority of the female drivers out there, but I do have to agree with Spyplane about the mini-van driving females.

Hmmm....
I think the insurance companies have spoken their mind about this.
At least here in Sweden (and Australia too according to Zooropamanda) women have to pay less for their insurance since they are less involved in accidents. We have the same satistics here, male under 25 are the ones who causes most accidents.

Just for fun, drivers I don't like, is those who drives Volvo models 240, 740, mainly. Everytime you end up in a line of cars, the first car is a Volvo driving very, very slow.

I get scared when my dad drives or when my boyfriend drives. Niether one uses turn signals and they drive like assholes. That's why I don't pay nearly as much in insurance as they do.

I admit I'm not a great driver, I tend to be nervous and I don't have great night vision.

oh yeah, I drive a tiny neon, not a big ass Expedition.
