Males 20-24 have large amounts of testosterone and are larger risk takers. They tend to have limited experience and a desire to impress others. I wonder if that would lead to greater risks.
85 and older I wonder if diminished skills and limited physical ability has something to do with this stat.
I wonder why the data doesn't include the proportion of time driven. Males drive more frequently and further than females on average. Iím not going to waste today finding the studies but they have been done.
Most women drive with 0-15 miles from home while males drive an expanded range of 0-35 miles from the last study I read. I wonder if you drive further if you would be on a highway with increased risk?
How about the fact that the majority of professional drivers are male. Truck drivers, Chauffeurs, Cab drivers, tour bus drivers, train engineers all are predominately male. Curious still why would a job that has little to do with physical strength be dominated by males so disproportionately?
Quick question. As a male when I go places as a couple I do most of the driving.
So the question:
Who does most of the driving in a relationship males or females?
all good points......I almost always drive, and probably put twice as many miles in a year on our vehicles.
