A survey has found that men really are more likely to be involved in major motoring crashes than women.
The study was based on data from 270,000 insurance claims.
It found that men are at a greater risk of being involved in a serious accident, while women usually escape with minor abrasions.
On the other hand, women are 55 per cent more likely than men to have an accident in a car park.
Also, women are 15 per cent more likely to hit a parked car.
