Why do MEN drive so much BETTER than WOMEN?

I mean really? Why is it the woman always seems to be the one in control of some big minivan full of screaming kids while she simotaneously does her nails/lipstick/talks on cellphone/checks visor mirror and thinks she has to turn at every single cross street, assuming that you are the poor soul behind her.

They either drive too slow and bog down the flow of traffic with their minivan, or ride your ass and cut people off in the way-too-damn-big-and-ugly Expedition.

Not that I can dance or anything

Well - I am a woman, and a safe driver who only concentrates on driving safe and nothing else, when behind a wheel.

For what it's worth - it's always men I see zipping in and out of traffic, riding our bumpers, running people off the road and driving at excessive speeds.

Still, though, it's not fair to target a specific gender for any infraction in society. We're all guilty of too many things to enumerate and attribute to one gender when griping.

I'm a woman and have no problems driving.

I don't tail.

I don't drive too slow. I love the left lane.

I drive my mom's minivan sometimes. I don't think I have to turn at every cross-thingie.

I don't know if your message was meant in good fun or if you're really that bigoted.

I have been driving for about ten years and I have yet have an accident/speeding ticket/traffic violation.

Maybe the women you know can't drive well, I don't think it applies to all women

It sounds like you are saying that all women have minivans that are full of children.

Your threading on thin ice there must, in my experience, women tend to be "over-safe", and a little too nervous.

Most accidents I've witnessed involve a woman driver...or if a man... usually caused by his trying to avoid a lady driver...or she slowly creeps out into the middle of an intersection when its a green light...never good!

But that being said...my best friend is a woman and she can outdrive me any day!

Based on what I have seen:

Men drive recklessly more often (excess speed, unnecessary lane changes)

Women pay less attention to driving more often (talking on cell phone, unaware of posted signs)

It evens out, so in the end, we're all kinda dumb.

Change is the only constant

One thing I have to point out: I see just as many women on their cell phone as men. Sure, women do spend a lot of time talking on the phone, but ever since cell phones have become so easy to buy, men AND women talk a LOT on their cell phones. It isn't just one gender.

Heh, time for me to make another sweeping generalization to get me spammed again!

The reason men dont drive like idiots sometimes is because men ARE idiots ALL the time, and therefore are always doing something stupid, such as cutting someone off, tailgating someone (very dangerous), or some other thing like hmm i dunno going 40-60kph over the speed limit.

Heh, now, lets see how many people call me a traitor to my gender now *grin* come on! I dare ya la la la

i dont know about other countries but in australia male drivers under 25 have the most accidents and therefore insurance is higher for them.

its not a gender thing. its a people thing. there are bad drivers male and female.
