Womens Cars Are Stolen, Mens Catch Fire

By Paul Myers

Recent research has discovered some startling facts surrounding the age old debate of who is most likely to crash the family car, Mum or Dad? Research undertaken by the insurance company, Diamond, divers some interesting facts to throw into the debate.

Female motorists are more likely to put in claims for collisions on roundabouts and hitting cars from behind, a study of more than two million accidents by insurance company Diamond found.

These are the findings of a study performed but the Insurance Company. Diamond who looked into over two million road accidents over five years and compared statistics between the sexes.

As well as having head-on collisions, men are more likely to hit crash barriers and trees or drive up and down embankments. Cars belonging to men are also more likely to catch fire, even though one hypothesis with this is the over use of high power-driven electronic goods use to ‘upgrade’ a cars stereo and speaker equipment.

Somewhat unexplainably, cars belonging to men are also more likely to catch fire, although one theory with this is the over use of high powered electronic goods use to ‘upgrade’ a cars stereo and speaker equipment.

Diamond’s managing director Sian Lewis said: “Women tend to be in more accidents at slower speeds where cars are close together, while men have more high-speed accidents where it is easy to lose control.

“Our research suggests the way men and women drive is different. Possibly men drive faster and more aggressively than women, while women are more easily distracted than men behind the wheel of a car.”

Lewis has also suggested that women are more likely to have their cars broken into as they are more prone to leaving personal belongings on show in the car, such as handbags, sunglasses and mobile phones which are snapped up by opportunistic thieves.
