Who are the worst drivers? Men or Women?

Table of Contents

The age-old debate about whether men or women are worse drivers never seems to die. While automobile accidents are never fun no matter who causes them, we understand your curiosity, so we did some research to find out who causes the most collisions and what causes them may surprise you. So, who is the worst driver?

Are you a man or a woman?

According to University of Michigan researchers who examined 6.5 million car accidents in the United States between 1998 and 2007, women drivers were involved in 68.1 percent of all collisions. Surprisingly, the researchers discovered that men drove 60 percent of the time overall, while women drove only 40 percent of the time. In other words, although driving less frequently, women were more likely to cause accidents.

The worst driver? Really?

This isn’t to claim that women are worse drivers than males; it just means that they are more likely to be involved in accidents. So, what could be the reason for this?

What is the root of the problem?

One of the reasons women are more likely to be involved in vehicle accidents is that men do more driving in general, so women may have less experience and be less confident behind the wheel. Another factor could be that women are often shorter than men and hence have less vision, particularly near junctions. However, a study conducted by Scottish academics in 2004 indicated that male drivers were responsible for 94% of fatal and bodily harm accidents.

It doesn’t matter if you are the worst driver. Accidents can be catastrophic regardless of who causes them. You may have a lot of expenses to make up, ranging from medical bills to property damage. That is why automobile accident attorneys are so beneficial: they can assist you in fighting for your right to compensation.
