In a study conducted at the University of Michigan of 6.5 million car crashes, it was found that more accidents are caused by women drivers. Before rushing to your Facebook page to post your outrage, read on for the reasoning behind the findings.

Less Experience Driving?

In many households, traditional gender roles are—whether on purpose or not—adhered to. That means that in more instances, the man of the house will drive and the woman will be the passenger. This can lead to the woman having less experience behind the wheel and in turn, not feeling as confident in her driving skills.  Being less confident with one’s driving can cause accidents when misjudging things like the space available for turning across multiple-lane highways or misjudging how long it will take to stop.

Shorter Stature

Another potential reason for the disparity in genders causing accidents could be due to the fact that, on average, women are of smaller stature than men. The way modern cars are built these days can hinder visibility, especially for shorter people. It’s been reported, also, that women order safety options on their cars at a higher rate than men do, which could be another indication that they do not feel entirely comfortable in their vehicles.

More Distractions

Another thing the study does not take into account is the possibility that women may be more likely to have children in their cars—children are a huge distraction to drivers, and distracted driving is a very big cause of car accidents. So while the study reported that women were more likely to be involved in a crash than men, the study’s validity fails to take a lot of factors into account.

If you do become involved in an accident and need legal representation, look for a car accident attorney who has experience with the type of accident you had. This will allow them to better help you.
