Rob,
I don't worry about noses but what does stand out is stats.

The only way this can be seen on a fair basis, is by the number of kilometres a male and female travels. The more you are on the road the more chance of getting a fine. So if they bring a study out that is between males and females and the total of kilometres travelled then that will give an the correct result.

There is no doubt in my mind that most women are better road citizens that drive with less ego. This makes them a lot safer. I also believe that most women are not as technically skilled as drivers, have slower reflexes and generally have eyesight that isn't as keen...but, all that means nothing much at all when it comes to sticking with the road rules. If we are talking about driving within the framework of the road rules and regulations, I would have to say women are better at it.

Gday
Sorry Michael, i don't believe your statements about women. I have been around woman all my life and find they are on an equal standing with reflexes and eye site and in some cases are much better at doing things than men are.

I've met a couple of women too, but my statements were actually based on studies as well -

Reflexes

Eyesight

These articles are typical of my experience. Women are better at peripheral vision and detecting colours, better at hearing and especially better at smelling things. Guys are experts in making smells so it balances out. But in a physical situation involving fast moving objects involving depth perception, guys see them and react quicker in my opinion. I'm not saying girls are slouches, far from it and a fast girl is quicker than most guys. It was a generalization that is becoming increasingly politically incorrect....most girls can now beat me in an arm wrestle too.

And how many men are not wearing their glasses , or need glasses , and think they are ok? I reconed my eyesite was great until the specialist said after the first operation that i was legal to drive now. Vanity is for both woman and men.

How about we just analyze the proportion of women who drive formula one, v8 super cars or in the Dakar rally? If they are more skilled as drivers then surely they would be in demand. However, I'll state it again, in the framework of normal driving with speed limits and road rules, women are definitely the better drivers.

My wife can't see too well, so with her driving can be hazardous, she has excellent hearing though . I can't hear too well so driving can also be hazardous, but I have excellent eyesight. Put us together in our 4wd and we are one!

As far as my eyes are concerned, when I see a female driving a 4wd out on the track or touring I find it quite sexy. Whether that makes them a better driver..............I really don't care!

My wife is amazing at driving the Troopie into places & along tracks that I wouldn't dare take it.
This has absolutely nothing to do with her driving skill or her greater ability over mine.

It is purely based on her complete lack of mechanical knowledge, which leads to a lack of understanding on what will or will not break the vehicle.... !!!!!! :) :) :)
