Women are ‘better’ drivers than men

By THE STAR | 16 June 2015

BEIJING: Woman drivers have been drawing increasing public attention, and given their gender bias, some people even consider woman drivers “killers behind wheels”.

According to Chinese tradition, men should work outside home and women within the confines of home. This gender bias has made some people suppose men are good at driving cars while women are not.

Research shows that gender differences do exist, mainly in terms of sense of space and language ability. If men in general have a better sense of space, women normally are better with languages. But that doesn’t necessarily mean all women have a poor sense of space.

In fact, given their cautious nature, women are more careful drivers than men. Statistics also show that most of the “killers behind wheels” are men. — China Daily / Asia News Network
