Women drivers less likely to be involved in car accidents than men, shows study
A new study has shown that women are less likely to be involved in road accidents and are also better at taking control of a driverless car due to their faster reaction times as compared to men.
This study was conducted by scientists from Newcastle University in England who found that women have more stable control over the wheel while driving.
According to the report of the British newspaper, The Times, the study consisted of 43 male and 33 female drivers in which they had to use a driving simulator. During the study, the women were able to control the vehicle faster than the men.
Women took an average of 2.45 seconds to take back control of a driverless car, while men took 2.63 seconds on average.
The research concluded that women are currently less likely to be involved in car accidents than men, however, women are more likely than men to fail the driving test.
