    Sixteen to twenty-one year olds. Proven to have more accidents due to inattentiveness and inexperience. This is because the parts of our brains that make good, quick decisions aren't fully developed until the mid-twenties.

    I find it is idiots that are the worst drivers. There was no option on the poll for that.

    the thread is not about who has the highest rate of fatality...and although I do believe that your probably right all that the chart proves is that when men do "mess up" we "mess up" spectacularly what if the question were rephrased to : who can parallel park better?

    I can't really say whether women or men are worse drivers. I've been buzzed and /or nearly killed by members of both sexes but cannot judge which is worse. The male drivers I had problems with weren't staring at attractive women nearby but were those who thought they completely owned the road all the time. In one instance, a male tour bus driver nearly shoved me off a narrow mountain road and over a 200 foot cliff.
    Meanwhile, the female drivers were not the stereotyped people who did their fingernails, applied makeup,and other such activities while behind the wheel. The females I speak of were contending with child care issues or were giving people the 400 watts as they maneuvered 10-ton dump trucks at breakneck speeds!

    Therefore, I cannot determine whether male drivers or female drivers are worse for this poll.

    Hmmm, I once commented to my dear wife who dislikes my driving that if men are worst drivers, why do we always end up driving?

    Her comeback was so good I nearly drove off the rode - "We are trying to give you practice..."

    Interesting numbers. I wonder what the accident rate/100,000 miles looks like, by gender? My suspicion is that while more males are killed, due to the risk factors cited, females may be involved in a higher proportion of (non-fatal) accidents.

    Hmm... I find that women are the most oblivious to the fact that they almost hit me or that I'm even there, but men are the biggest jerks in the sense that they don't have the patience to wait and pass safely.

    I've often wondered if the statistics about male v. female drivers are skewed since men seem to drive more frequently.
    Brilliant!

    I have driven in all of them and am thus well qualified to state that learning to drive should be a requirement for getting a license in NJ.

    Also note that it records deaths by vehicle occupants - which would not necessarily be the same gender as the operator of the vehicle. All this shows is that men are more likely to die in a vehicle than women.

    I was trying and trying to come up with how to say what I thought. And then, there it was. Thanks.
