women make good drivers!

hmm, not sure if it goes in here. but i think its funny, especially for all the guys who say women are bad drivers.

Women Drivers Slower to Learn, But Safer

LONDON (Reuters) - British women take longer to master the art of driving than men, but once the "L" plates are ditched, women are safer on the road, the AA motoring organization said on Friday.
The AA said women learner drivers on average take 14.6 months from starting to drive to passing the driving test compared with a year for men.
Women also need to take 2.12 tests to achieve success against a figure of 1.87 tests for men.
"It certainly isn't all bad news for women. Once they have passed they are recognized by insurance companies to be the safer drivers," the AA's Matt Beavis said.
The AA, which has over 1,700 driving instructors, said government data showed women's most common serious fault was reversing or turning in the road, accounting for 45 percent of all test fails, compared with 32 percent for men.
"Generally, men are more technically-minded and tend to pick up the practical skills more easily. Women, on the other hand, often interpret what they are taught and develop their own technique when putting it into practice, which may take a little more time," Linda Hatswell of AA driving school said.

Re: women make good drivers!

Learning to Drive in this country teaches you piss all about driving other than how to actually pass the practical. Doing that "BSM Shuffle" feed the wheel thing is, in my opinion, less helpful in situations than hand-over-hand*. You just cannot react quick enough to get out of danger feeding the wheel.

The true learning experience comes after you pass the test.


And the insurance thing is criminal in its discrimination but I can't be bothered going there.

lol turning in the road they have the toughest time with...that scares me.

how can you have so much trouble, turning in the road? just move the wheel and watch were you are going.

you can't drive defensively. you do, then someone else is going to hit you, hard. drive like a maniac, and people will stay away from you. I like to think i drive 'offensively.' if im going to crash, it's going to be a fucking hell of a collision. haha

Re: women make good drivers!

haha.
ya you got a point, but theyre still safer drivers. i mean, it might take a while to get the hang of it, but they eventually get it.
and if too many guys drive like you do, no wonder women are safer. haha

Re: women make good drivers!

I do that when they're driving shite. I start pressing my foot into the carpet because I know we should be braking by certain points and nothings happening. Then they try and break my neck by emergency stopping at the line.

Re: women make good drivers!

I don't that that all women drivers are bad... I think there are a majority that are just from my expirence, but there are also men drivers who are horrible

Affter a christmas party I was driving my brothers truch home and my sister was driving the family van home. I was following her and she had to change lanes. so she puts on the left single light... but she is already in the left lane and she moves over into the right lane almost hitting another truch besider. That same night she almost crashed the van two more times it was scary

I dunno why I told you that it has nothing to do with everything
