Are men really better drivers than women?


And no.

As mentioned in "Drivers need crash course on road safety," men are still more likely to pass the GMAC-led driving test than women, ... "but the gap is considerably smaller in 2009 (81 percent of males versus 79 percent of females) than in 2008 (87 percent of males versus 80 percent of females)."

Here's the catch, which GMAC conspicuously posted on another Web page:

"Factoring in margin for error, average test scores between the genders were similar (21 percent female versus 19 percent male)."
In other words, we are all bad drivers. Now please stop reading this and concentrate your eyes on the road.
