Why do women never look sideways while driving???
Im on the highway a lot for work. I notice all the women of all ages always look straight ahead and have both hands on 10 and 2

I always check out other drivers I pass and look out into fields I past and such. every time a women or girl passes me I look over and they have 'blinders' on almost. they are so oblivious!

any women on here chime in here on this please??? thought you were all great multi taskers?!?!?

I don't think its a matter of using the peripherals.. I can only speak for myself.. but I don't "trust" my peripherals to take in the whole view. The same goes when using my mirrors.. I will always look. Blind spots are every where, even in your "womanly" peripherals..
High is the way, but all eyes are upon the ground.
You were the light and the way they'll only read about.
I only pray, Heaven knows when to lift you out.
Ten thousand days in the fire is long enough;
You're going home.

You're the only one who can hold your head up high,
Shake your fists at the gates saying:
"I've come home now!
Fetch me the spirit, the son, and the father.
Tell them their pillar of faith has ascended.
It's time now!
My time now!

i think thats why women are terrible drivers. they use their peripheral vision more. men are more likely to make full head turns and be more 'aware' of thier surroundings

Yes I know there are blind spots.


Want to know why women really do it...it's to avoid eye contact.

that's right if a woman accidentally makes eye contact with a male...the dumbasses think she is checking him out.

All guys check out the women in the cars next to them when their in traffic or a red light.

That's why they never look over.

Every notice the only ones who look back are either nasty looking or old as the hills?

Peripheral vision my ass. You can only see clearly for 5 degrees off center. Everything beyond that is just a blur.


So yeah you might be able to see something move. But you can't tell what it is unless you look at it directly.

Which is why women get in more accidents involving pedestrians and children playing in the street than men do.

They rely on their peripheral vision too often I guess.

In fact women get in twice as many vehicle accidents than men.


Men though typically speed so when they do cause an accident it causes more damage.

Not going to argue this one.. Men are strange like that.. I mean, you directly quoted me.. you MUST want me! LoL I kid.

I try to stay aware of my surroundings at all time, whether its doing 70 down the highway, or parked at a red light.

Don't get me wrong, but I would think driving safely would over-rule the "avoiding eye contact." Chances are you are never going to see that person again anyways.. course I'm talking about driving safe and I have literally seen woman changing and putting on make-up on the freeway lol.. (not saying men don't do stupid shit while driving!)

Though possibly true.. the insurance company doesn't give a shit what you look like. The reason is logical, Men tend to show off more than woman, hence causing more accidents.

Re: Why do women never look sideways while driving???
I will say this about both men and women drivers.. Whenever I see someone driving 10 and 2, the first thought that goes through my head is they are probably not a confident driver.. Though I could be wrong, its been known to happen.

Re: Why do women never look sideways while driving???
The looking sideways, is not so new, as the holding a phone to their ear with one hand a gesturing, with the other. What is holding the steering wheel? Yes women on the whole do use their hands when they talk more than men. Oh and by the way, If men are looking, they know what is going on around them. Now this should get me in some deep do-do.

Re: Why do women never look sideways while driving???
I think it's a lot of things(some already mentioned, like obvious googly-eyes and the like) mixed together, I've noticed the same OP commuting to work. It's a mystery to me, also relates to my girlfriend and experiences I have while she's driving.

I have no intention of sounding sexist, but merely stating observations:

It seems that men are almost more aware visually and spatially than women. Women seem to be more aware mentally and emotionally. Men find it satisfying to 'know' all of the factors involved, before and during an accident, lets say. While a woman would want to instead ask 'why' and 'if everyone is alright' after an accident. Just a couple theories rolled up into one, I haven't tried to exactly communicate my experiences thus far, but what your OP has is something that's been on my mind.

Also, this difference in sexes, one being satisfied by visual stimulus and the other by emotional stimuli would mean, women have almost no reason to "check out" other drivers. Occassionally they may at a red light but it's probably in inverse proportions to the amount of time men spend "checking" everyone around them.

Seems to be natural, I HAVE to believe this to handle riding with my sig other, she simply does not pay attention, nor is consistent enough to encourage feelings of safety, actually, she doesn't find it necessary to pay attention, she instantly zones out, gets lost in thought or daydreams while driving, haha! I'm sure everyone does it quite a bit, but there are necessary precautions to take while driving and, hopefully, maintaining safety for everyone else on the road.
