 Women Make Better Drivers
Men may not like to hear this, but women are named as better drivers than men especially when it comes to safe driving.

Men were four times more likely to be the driver in a fatal accident than women, according to latest crash statistics from Australia's Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA).

Figures showed that while there was a 2.3 percent rise in crashes with men controlling vehicles, women, on the other hand, set a decline of almost two per cent when steering the wheel involved in a fatal accident.

"It is about being careful. Women are better drivers because they are more cautious," quoted high performance driving instructor Amy Boatwright as saying.

Boatwright added: "Women are really interested in the sport but when it comes to actual driving they don't have the confidence. It is because they have that in-built caution."
