... Men 'worse drivers' Men 'worse drivers'

1 April 2008

Men and women have argued about their driving skills or lack of them for decades.

But new research reveals that the guys are actually far worse than the girls.

A study by revealed that men are two and a half times more likely to get driving offence convictions, compared to female drivers.

And that's because of the attitudes that male motorists have on the road, the research revealed.

Between January 2007 and 2008, the car insurance comparison company recorded 2,305,374 male motorist misdemeanours.

This compared to just 920,027 convictions among women drivers, ranging from speeding to death by dangerous driving.

Debra Williams, managing director at, said however: "We would like to remind drivers that not only does dangerous and careless driving have a safety implication, but gaining points on your licence also has a detrimental effect on your insurance premiums.

"While nobody is perfect, we would advise our customers to take more care when driving. Planning your route, allowing extra time and taking into consideration elements such as the great British weather, should result in less accidents and a reduction in convictions."
