even though plenty of women drivers are good drivers some of them are just right down ****** and shouldn't be allowed on the public roads.
But surely the same could be said of men. Not all of mens' bad driving is down to their hot-headed, reckless youth. I've seen plenty of middle aged men executing dangerous and reckless manoeuvres and in Poland a lot of the older men are particularly bad as they learned during years when it appears to have been a free-for-all on Polish roads with almost no rules. Come on Ironside, the number of times I've seen Polish drivers mount the pavement to overtake traffic jams and I've had cars who want to park, drive straight at me at considerable speed on the pavement in Warsaw numerous times. They don't understand the concept that if you're going to mount the pavement for parking purposes, you SLOW down. Poland has a disproportinately high number of road fatalties involving pedestrians.
As to the stats and facts, according to the EU's analysis of accidents and fatalties in the member states 'there is extensive evidence to show that men have a higher rate of collisions than women'.
Then please show me how many kilometers a week women do!!!
'data available in Sweden, The Netherlands and the UK have shown that large differences in male and female mortality rates
remain even after taking into consideration the fact that men use the roads more than women.' (Source EU study on gender in road accidents 2016)
Of course there are some terrible women drivers and quite a few old dears who shouldn't be on the road. In fact people of either gender who drive too slowly can also be a danger, hesitating at junctions, stopping suddenly, slowing down to a crawl on bends or when they see approaching traffic etc. In my experience they exhibit a lot of behaviours that are likely to cause someone to crash into the back of them. However the stats overwhelmingly bear out the fact that it is men who are repsonsible for the overwhelming majority of fatal accidents on the road and who commit the highest number of offences related to dangerous driving. To suggest that they are 'better' drivers because they can parallel park in a tight space is cobblers. And even that is questionable as covert surveillance of British car parks has shown:
