The Women Driving thread (babygoose’s) made me think about some males who put down female drivers. I’ve even heard male teens make disparaging comments, generalizing all females as inferior drivers.September 4, 2011 3:30 am at 3:30 am #805468shlishiMember
I guess the majority of bad female drivers give all females a bad name. 😉September 4, 2011 3:33 am at 3:33 am #805469
BTW, male insurence rates are higher because statisticly they are more likly to be involved in an accident. (Aldough the reason might be because they usealy drive farther distences).September 4, 2011 3:35 am at 3:35 am #805470squeakParticipant
shlishi, pretty good! The real quote is “99% of female drivers give the rest a bad name”. ?September 4, 2011 3:41 am at 3:41 am #805471WIYMember
I know some female drivers who are excellent drivers. I can’t generalize because I have personally seen plenty of men do the bumper-car or bump-your car park. Yes now you know why nobody in Brooklyn has paint on either bumper.September 4, 2011 3:42 am at 3:42 am #805472
In the purim section of the country yossi magezine;
New speed limits, male: 140 mph, female:35 mph,
Assemblyman Dov Hikind demands an investigation clamming 35 mph is way to fast for females to drive.September 4, 2011 3:44 am at 3:44 am #805473popa_bar_abbaParticipant
Sorry ladies. But the vast majority of you just cannot drive worth beans.
I know plenty of women who have been driving for decades and still avoid the expressways and get intimidated by normal driving.
So while Danica Patrick may get offended by our generalization, the bottom line is that 16 year old guys have more confidence behind the wheel than their mothers. And should.September 4, 2011 3:49 am at 3:49 am #805474am yisrael chaiParticipant
I’m with you. Besides the missing paint, some in Brooklyn don’t have bumpers at all anymore! And continue the bumping-while-parking routine. I had a neighbor whose wife would go out to apologize to the parked vehicle’s owner….September 4, 2011 3:55 am at 3:55 am #805475ShtiegerMember
there was a 16 year old kid driving in front of me the other day. he kept on jerking, swerving etc.. no confidence in the slightest. I had to keep my distance from him to avoid an accident, until I was able to overtake. popa bar abba, your generalisation is pretty true but unfortunately not every single guy has pure confidence behind the wheel. One of the reasons why majority guys are better at manuvering vehicles is because they have a much higher muscle stregth than women.September 4, 2011 3:56 am at 3:56 am #805476bombmaniacParticipant
insurance rates are lower because women are more CAREFUL drivers not because they are involved in fewer accidents. theres a difference. guys are more likely to drive recklessly. my definition of a good driver includes someone who can drive 50 on city streets for 10 years and never once have an accident.September 4, 2011 3:59 am at 3:59 am #805477yitayningwutParticipant
Aren’t they called bumpers because you’re supposed to bump into them? That’s what I always thought…September 4, 2011 4:07 am at 4:07 am #805478wanderingchanaParticipant
My dad took me to a HS parking lot when I was 15 and taught me to drive on a stick shift. We went during the winter and he used the parking brake to put me into skids so I could learn to recover from them.
If your daughter/wife is a bad driver, it’s your own fault. Teach her/get her lessons, or start doing her errands yourself. One day of carpool and you’ll be begging her to take over.September 4, 2011 4:50 am at 4:50 am #805479bein_hasdorimParticipant
To the 5% of good female drivers, we are not talking about you.
I personally wish there were more of out there.
However in my driving experiences, most of the time when I have an erratic driver ahead of me or one that may as well be going reverse or riding a mechanical pony, when I pull up to wave and smile, 90% of the time it is female driver or a senior citizen.
The other almost 10% weres male drivers on the phone.
Now if i’m really lucky and running very late I might get the opportunity to exchange pleasantries in passing with a female senior citizen “operating” (if you can call it that) a motor vehicle, or to them spaceship is a more appropriate term.September 4, 2011 11:33 am at 11:33 am #805480welldressed007Participant
Insurance companies differentiate between men and woman. Men like to show off and pay a price with higher premiums.September 4, 2011 1:41 pm at 1:41 pm #805481
AS I aid before men do the long distence driving so they pay more because they drive more. Per mile of driing they pay less.September 4, 2011 1:58 pm at 1:58 pm #805482CheinMember
Insurance is more for men since statistically men drive more and thus are involved in more incidents. But, as deiyezooger pointed out, per mile men have less driving incidents.September 4, 2011 2:00 pm at 2:00 pm #805483bombmaniacParticipant
yeah…the chassidim didnt ban women from driving because of tznius…they banned women from driving because of sakanas nefashos…
