Are women Better Drivers than Men? Men drivers versus Women drivers is an topic that have been discussed for an long time, an survey carried out by Traffic Control Authorities and the Road Development Authorities shows that men are more involved in fatal crashes, single-vehicle road crashes and drink driving.

The survey also showed that the women also tended to take fewer driving risks than men, so their crashes were only a third as likely to be fatal.
