Is it now valid to claim "women are the worse drivers on the road."


Following drivers on the road today, I have seen a remarkable decline in drivers following the rules of the road. Most of these bad drivers appear to be women. Men still drive too fast, but now women have joined and overtaken men in that bad trait. I see vehicles in front of me swerving left & right out of the lane. They don't use turn signals unless while turning. They run stop signs. They tailgate. They run lights. It has become scary to drive. This all seemed to worsen with texting. I would love to hear your opinions & experiences.

    Crosswalks & stop signs. It seems drivers rush to be the 1st at a stop sign to be the 1st to go. And, drivers roll through rather than courteously wait at crosswalks for pedestrians to pass. What's the hurry?

    I think we all agree: there are DANGEROUS drivers out there, many of them, and they put not only their lives but others' in danger. Worldwide, rules (LAWS) of the road are very simple and designed for safety: only stupid people wouldn't follow them.

    Good point. It is usually unwise to make broad sweeping statements like the one that started this thread. Granted, it makes for an entertaining debate, but painting any group of people with wide brush strokes usually accomplishes little....

    The blind cannot see. I suggest you lighten up. Unless, your defensive posture reveals your guilty feelings about the truth you choose not to admit?

    I never said "all." There r many women who r better drivers than many men. Mine is an honest observation on numbers in general w/no monetary incentive or defensive posture because of my sex (like some). Men do wrong too, but women r not perfect.

    Oh, good point, I HATE slow drivers! They're a menace! Especially those that can't merge at the speed of traffic--topping the list are the ones that stop at the end of the merge lane!!

    Ah, but statistics always have an ulterior motive and men drive more than women and stats have to be undated "daily" and cover "everyone" to have any legitimacy. And I posed a "question," not an answer. lol.

    Fair enough statement. I believe texting is the number one cause for the crazy increase in road weaving & non-attention. Teens & women (women r teens too) tend to need to be constantly chatting. 4 men/boys its more speed & power.
