No surprise here. It's nice to see that statistics have proved it though.

Mean are far more likely to drink and drive and, more especially, drive without a licence.

We need car insurance reform too.

Not surprised by the article or it's conclusion. But, if it's ok to charge men more, then shouldn't we all be ok with insurance company discrimination? Health, pre-existing conditions, gender, etc.? Seems to me that insurance companies should operate under the law of large numbers, which they did until Congress exempted them from Anti-Trust regs and States allowed draconian medical underwriting. This same study could have been race based, instead of gender. I have no idea what it would have concluded, but is that type of study ok? They could also have chosen car color, income level, type of vehicle, or any other discriminatory factor.

Why do we allow insurance companies to discriminate in ways that would cause any employer to be sued?

I think the larger issue here is that all people- men and women- need to be more careful, more attentive, more respectful of other when out on the road.
