Man or Woman: Who Is the Better Driver?

Just ask any man and you'll get the same answer - "No; I will not pull over for directions."Every man knows his gender is the best equipped to handle two tons of steel on the open road or in city traffic, just as every chef knows when the soufflé is done.

A friend of mine who is a policeman has told me he pulls women over for two main reasons: texting while driving, and applying makeup(eyeliner, lipstick) while driving.

Actually, lots of men I know are fine with asking for directions. Not everyone is a sexist stereotype of their gender. It's fun to note that studies show that the average driver believes s/he is a better than average driver. This is partly because people value their particular strengths more than their weaknesses, and there are many skills involved in driving. So, whichever aspects you are best at, you tend to think are the most important ones. In truth, humans don't make very good drivers, and we'll all be better off when we can automate the process.

Neither, both are such terrible drivers, that we really need to teach cats and dogs how to drive, if we are going to survive as a species! LOL!

I think guys drink and drive much more than women, it's that macho thing. Also a lot of guys also love to ogle women, heck I was almost killed a couple of times by fools paying attention to a skirt instead of the road. If I had not been paying attention, I would be dead or crippled because of men drivers!

I know plenty of men that are terrible drivers, but I also know my share of women that should go for more driver training too. Both should be careful on the road and pay attention to driving and not eating or texting etc.

In my opinion it doesn't depend on the sex if someone ist a good driver or not ...

I think that the question itself is very odd - it' s like asking Who is a better human being: Man or Woman...absolutely irrational!

In general men are better at judging distances, have much better situational awareness and are more skilled, but on the other hand men are in general also much more willing to take risks - especially men under the age of 25 often take utterly insane chances.

So who is "better" - the one who has the higher skill but insists on exceeding hes skill level or the one with less skill, but respects the limitation? Men certainly seem to cause more bad accidents.
