Survey: Women are better drivers than menon January 14, 2012 @ 10:20 am (Updated: 2:13 pm - 8/22/12 )
It's an age-old question that men and women have been dealing with for decades: who's the better driver?
A new survey from 4AutoInsuranceQuote.com gives the edge to women.
The national numbers show that women are less likely to cause a serious accident or be arrested for drunk driving, according to the study.
The survey also showed that women are 27 percent less likely than men to cause auto accidents.
In 2007, men were involved in 6.1 million car accidents while women were involved in 4.4 million accidents.
Not only do women get in less accidents, but they pay less for insurance as well. The average six-month insurance policy for a woman costs only $698, in comparison to $765 for a man.
