Researchers looked at 6.5million car crashes that took place in the U.S. between 1998 and 2007
The results are even more surprising as men spend more time driving than women

Comments (157) Add to My Stories Share Women drivers are more likely to be involved in an accident, according to scientists.

Researchers looked at 6.5million car crashes and found a higher than expected number of accidents between two female drivers.

They also discovered that women have a tough time negotiating crossroads, T-junctions and slip roads.
Truth to a stereotype? Women drivers are more likely to be involved in an accident, scientists found after analysing data from 6.5million car crashes
The results are even more surprising given that men spend more time behind the wheel than women. On average, men drive 60 per cent of the time, and women 40 per cent.

Michael Sivak, of the University of Michigan, said: 'The results indicate that in certain crash scenarios, male-to-male crashes tend to be under-represented and female-to-female crashes tend to be over-represented.'...(more at link)

Women Drivers...astronauts inspect shuttle wings, nose for damage(from 2007)


Shuttle Discovery astronauts checked the orbiter's wings and nose for damage on Wednesday using lasers and a camera atop its robotic arm, a day ahead of its rendezvous with the International Space Station.

At first glance, the shuttle does not appear to have suffered any major damage to its heat shield, which protects its from scorching temperatures during its return to Earth, said shuttle flight director Rick Labrode.

"Nobody has seen anything significant," Labrode told reporters. "Things are going extremely well."

Damaged thermal tiles caused shuttle Columbia's breakup on reentry in 2003, killing its seven astronauts.

The inspection with lasers and a special camera mounted atop the shuttle's robotic arm was conducted from inside the shuttle and lasted five-and-a-half hours.

Discovery's two-week mission includes delivering and attaching the Harmony module to the International Space Station. The module will allow two future Japanese and European scientific laboratories to be attached to the ISS.

Discovery is scheduled to dock with the ISS at 1235 GMT Thursday.885

The shuttle blasted off Tuesday from Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, with seven astronauts on board, including two women -- one of them shuttle commander Pamela Melroy -- and an Italian astronaut from the European Space Agency.

Women have brats screeching in the backseat. It is a distraction and so is the cell phone.

I have never been in an accident when I was the driver. I'm 41.

All asians suck behind the wheel. George Lopez is right. The driver's seat is asian kryptonite.

When I lived in San Fran, the shittiest driver's that were all over the fucking road, you'd pass by and say who wants to bet they're asian!?! And of course they were. SK's are the worst of the worst. if someone looked like they were stroking out behind the wheel they'd usually have an SK sticker on their KIA.

I can't say that I would call it "driving". It seems more like just steering a behemoth on wheels in the general direction of wherever they are headed.

The vehicles continue to increase in size, but they just barely peek over the top of the steering wheel, and scare the other drivers into submission.

Generally, the Left lane is reserved for High Occupancy vehicles, but it is largely possessed by them driving humongous vehicles, while applying make up, while texting or talking.

Reminds me of the time cars were all lined up behind this tractor out on the highway as it was half out in the road. She did not care. Air head.
