The old argument of who are worse drivers—men or women—never seems to die. While car accidents are never fun no matter who is causing them, it’s understandable that you might be curious, so we did a little digging to find out who causes more collisions, and you may be surprised why.

Men or Women?

According to researchers at the University of Michigan, who analyzed 6.5 million car crashes in the United States between 1998 and 2007, women drivers were found to be involved in 68.1 percent of all crashes. Interestingly, the researchers also found that men were driving 60% of the time overall, while women were only driving 40% of the time. In other words, despite women driving less often, they were more frequently the ones causing accidents. However, this isn’t necessarily saying that women are poorer drivers than men, just that they more commonly get into accidents. So, why might that be?

What’s the Cause?

One of the reasons women may find themselves involved in car accidents more often is because since men do more of the driving overall, women may have less experience and may not be as confident behind the wheel. Another reason may be that women are typically shorter than men and may not be able to see as well, especially at intersections. Another study, done by Scottish researchers in 2004, however, stated the opposite; in their research, they found that male drivers caused 94 percent of accidents that caused death or bodily harm.

No matter who causes the accidents, they can be devastating. From medical bills to damaged property, you may end up with quite a bit of expense to make up. That’s why car accident lawyers are so helpful—they can help fight for your right to be compensated.
