Yes, inherently we all feel this is true (and when I say we, I mean my side of the toilet block, obviously) but the facts quite simply say otherwise, and if you don't believe us, go and ask an insurance company; because they never lie.
Well, their actuaries don't anyway, and that's why women tend to get a better deal. A study of 100,000 insurance claims in 2015 by the Royal Automobile Association of South Australia showed women had made 7,000 fewer crash-insurance claims than men in the past two years.
The company also reported that men had caused nearly two-thirds of all rear-end crashes, which is one of the most common fender benders.
"The data indicates that women appear to be safer drivers and less likely to cause serious damage," said Hayley Cain, senior claims manager.
Men, of course, also have more of the dangerous, deadly accidents. Australian figures show blokes are as much as four times more likely to be involved in fatal crashes.
