I have been told and said many times that women should stop driving because men drive better than women and each time a woman drive they create a mess all over. Well, not anymore now.
According to the statistics provided by the Delhi Police, in 2017, not a single woman was claimed for bad driving. And in 2018 only one has been arrested for the offence, till now.
According to a report published by a national daily, a traffic police officer said,” While analysing trends, we found women, in general, are more careful while taking turns or at intersections where the maximum number of accidents takes place.”
Also, the traffic police study on accidents indicated that only 2% of drivers involved in accidents were shown to be women. The study claimed that while speeding was the biggest killers on roads in Delhi, women were seen to generally drive within speed limits.
Women also figure as a negligible group in all other traffic offences but form a comparatively sizeable 10 percent of all the accident fatalities.
So, cheer up girls and always remember you are no less than anyone in any field. And if next time you come around any “women can’t drive joke” just use the information well to shut the mouth of the people.
