It’s a running joke ever since the first woman took her place behind a steering wheel; women can’t drive. Apparently, researchers think the same way. Running data from car accidents in USA from 1998 to 2007, they found women were more likely to get into accidents, and had trouble negotiating crossroads, T-junctions and slip roads. While men spend more time behind teh wheel, they are less likely to get into accidents. Dr Sivak, who headed the research says the results may be due to height difference between the male and female drivers. We have no idea how that part works.
