"Men and women are different
. In terms of driving behaviour, the differences can be seen clearly in the greater propensity of males to take risks, exhibit aggression and seek thrilling sensations. The results of these differences are highlighted very clearly across the globe in higher accident statistics, more expensive and frequent insurance claims and higher rates of convictions for offences such as dangerous and drink-driving
These differences may be shaped by socialisation, but they are rooted in more fundamental factors. Evolutionary psychology provides a strong basis for sourcing many of these back to the little-changed cognitive structures required by our hunter-gather ancestors.The authors believe there is overwhelming evidence that propensities towards certain types of behaviour, including less-safe driving, are ‘hard wired’ in men."
