    Well around here I know a lot of men who drive slower and you can see them pointing a lot! So that means they are looking for deer or any other kind of animal!!!

    Surely this isn’t a real question. Where do you think the term” Women drivers!” came from?

    Hmm, you like treading dangerously, don’t you? Well, I honestly don’t know. I know some pretty good ones and pretty bad ones on both sides.

    If I must generalize, I will say women are better at developing good habits, such as using turning signals and putting on seatbelts. Men on average seem to be a bit more confident, which means they may avoid skittish mistakes. Women and men observe different details, for better or worse. Women may be a bit more approachable with suggestions for doing things differently.

    Thinking about the two related drivers who live here, I must say both of them are terrors on the road. And both the male and the female defy all gender driving stereotypes.

    I think it goes both ways depending on who you are riding with!

    I think women are more cautious so therefore get less tickets and into less accidents but I’d much rather have a man drive under bad conditions (snow, rain, ice) that most women I know. Now, these have only been my experiences.

    I don’t think there is an answer to this to be honest. There are some women drivers that are better than men, and vice versa. I am a very cautious driver and never speed, but I always have kids in the truck with me, so I got used to driving very careful. My husband is a little crazier than me, okay much crazier than me when it comes to driving but I trust him 100%! It all depends, I think.

    Not necessarily better. Women just drive differently than men in most instances. A little more defensively I’d have to say based on the driving patterns of my brothers. I think age has a lot to do with it. Younger people of both sexes seem to be in a greater hurry and a little less cautious than middle-aged or older people. They also don’t seem, in most instances, to focus as much on their driving and the developing situations around them.

    I must admit that it ticks me off to see women applying makeup in the car or men using an electric razor plugged into the car lighter. But then it also ticks me off to see people on the cell phone or texting while driving. It’s just a crazy world these days and often hard for people to focus on just one thing. Multi-tasking or ADD? That is the question! 🙂
