Could It Be True That Women Cause More Herndon Car Crashes?



This title more than likely invoked some feeling, whether you are a female driver or not. For as long as automobiles have been around, there has been debate over who is a safer driver – a man or woman. One recent study only fuels this debate and makes you wonder who is more likely to cause a Herndon car crash.

Researchers at the University of Michigan analyzed 6.5 million auto accidents and discovered that female-to-female accidents accounted for up to 20.5 percent of all crashes. This figure was a lot higher than they had expected. Going into the study, researchers believed that the percentage would be closer to 15.8 percent.

Women May Be More Prone To Herndon Car Crashes

There have been many questions raised as to why women may be more likely to cause an accident. Of course, most of the explanations are based on theories and not hard facts. For example, some believe that it might have to do with the nature vs. nurture concept, meaning that the stereotypes we place on genders even affects driving behavior. Researchers point out that men typically do the driving, while women ride as passengers. This could lead to less driving experience for women.

This study will likely lead to more jokes about female drivers and give chauvinists further material to use.
