The Best Drivers Are…
Who are better drivers – men or women?

Men as a group are not better drivers. And women are not just as good as men, they're better.

Bridgestone/Firestone's Centennial activities included a study of driving skill by gender. One of the test components was to ask which gender was the better driver. Surprise (not), each gender believed it was the safest behind the wheel.
  • More than three-quarters (76%) of the women replied that they were the safest drivers, even though 55% admitted that they occasionally exceeded the speed limit.
  • More than two-thirds (69%) of the men surveyed believed they were the safer drivers, but a full 60% of that group ‘fessed up to speeding every now and then.
Conclusions of this and similar studies say that women take fewer risks and seem to anticipate hazards better than men do. On average, men drive too fast and are more prone to drink and drive. They are more likely to break traffic laws, weave in and out of traffic, tailgate and speed. In short, women are better drivers.
