Obviously 34 accidents is too small of a sample size to draw any conclusions from, and your sister does not represent all women but only herself. You cannot make generalizations about the general population based on only the women (and men) that you know. Maybe you surround yourself with idiots, for all I know. Secondly, responding also to earlier posters, having more male than female drivers on the road is irrelevant, because I assume insurance companies base their rates on the percentage of male/female drivers that have accidents and not the total number. Furthermore, I doubt insurance companies include statistics from the mid-20th century when analyzing their data. All that being said, I still am not making a claim as to which gender is better at driving. I'm a woman, and I believe I'm an exceptional driver, especially because others have told me so much. Perhaps I'm just an all around exceptional woman, because I also excel in mathematics, sports, and woodworking. My senior year of high school, out of 422 seniors, I won the Calculus Award AND I was the prom queen ha ha.
