Why are women better drivers than men?
It is found that the incidence of accident is low among women drivers. Why is it so?
I don't know that it's so much a difference between women and men as it is a difference between attitudes. A teachable attitude allows a person to be a better driver. An attitude that pays attention to the need to focus on tasks at hand makes a person a better driver. As well, an attitude that is rooted in a desire to do what is right (rather than an I don't care about anyone but "me" attitude) makes a person a better driver.
If the record shows that women are generally better drivers I have to conclude that all of the above means that women generally choose to be better drivers.
it's generally considered taht less accidents happen by woman becuase there are fewer woman drivers, if you scaled the amount of woman drivers to match the amount of male drivers you see the accident amounts start to level out. though i admit this is only some thing i've heard, i don't know for fact if it's true or not
Probably because they are much more cautious and also they are more inclined towards following the rules.....
Up in Pennsylvania, we tend to blame most accidents on women drivers...
From my perspective, I drive safe because I have my children with me in the car.
I would question the claim that women are better drivers. Better is a statement which makes a question subjective. Better drivers than what or who? And Better because they do what?
I am guessing though that you mean better and have less accidents than men?
I remember several years ago there was an insurance study which found little disparity between numbers of accidents. Women in the study had as many accidents as men within a small margin of error.
The main difference was the type of accident, women tended to have low speed accidents, hitting cars in car parks or hitting small objects causing minor damage and so less cost to repair.
Men however tended to have higher velocity crashes in which one or more vehicles were total "write-offs" therefore a worse risk for insurance companies.
I wouldn't say better drivers but women are indeed less prone to car accidents than men. It is because women care more about health and family things than men. I'm not saying that men don't care about their families but women care more and if there are children in the car they will drive even more carefully in order to make sure nothing bad happens.
Perhaps the statistics say it is so. I think testosterone causes many problems. As far as better drivers, I dont agree. More restrained maybe. I think women have more of a tendency to get wrapped up in a conversation and only give half of their focus to driving. This is not to mention the women that put on makeup while driving which AMAZES me...crazy
Women tend to be more careful than men. Male drivers that I have encountered take a lot of chances on the road. They drive a lot faster than women.

Lady drivers tend to face car accidents, causing minor damages to the sides of the vehicle. Is this due to their comparatively poor ability to judge the width of the vehicle?
