A new study suggests men engage in risky driving practices more frequently than women.
U.S. (WiredPRNews.com) – For years women’s driving habits have been stereotyped by some as being second best to those of men. As reported by The 33 News, a new study has found that it is men who engage in risky driving behaviors more often, drive more miles, and die at higher rates in vehicle accidents.
Chris Gay, founder of Mile Meter Auto Insurance, is quoted in the report as stating of the pricing policies of some insurance companies based on gender, “Some insurers, not all will charge a lower premium for a female driver…It’s a large discriminatory pricing issue that needed to be addressed which is why it was advocated using the odometer as a way to meter pricing.”
As noted in the report, the study was conducted by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
