It's official! Women are better behind the wheel
Women are up to a fifth safer on the road, a team of experts has concluded.
They break speed limits less, brake less suddenly and avoid danger after dark by driving considerably less often at night than male motorists.
The verdict comes from the study of data from black box recorders in the vehicles of 19,000 motorists, which were used to monitor more than 40 million journeys and 154 million miles of travel over four years, the Daily Express reported.
Half the drivers were men and half were women. The research was carried out by car monitoring firm Wunelli, which analyses black box systems used by some insurance companies to set premiums.
Their experts found women drive 28 per cent less at night than men, exceed speed limits 12 per cent less and brake hard 11 per cent less.
