    Peer review scientific study. Sorry your argument has no real merit because in some states it is no longer true.

    Okay, I'll accept this if you accept the peer reviewed studies that show you can't change your sexuality

    Besides I'm 5'11" I'm pretty sure I don't qualify for "why" women are bad drives according to the study.

    Your report misrepresents their findings.

    I don't need to read the report to know what real life presents to me.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Apples and oranges. This is not even close to the same thing.

    Why do you take something so silly personal?

    Yes, he said they misrepresented the findings and then linked to the actual findings. Your story says women are more dangerous, while the original story is that women are involved in men in certain kinds of crashes.

    A few other things I saw/heard about in Hawaii on the road ways (all involving male drivers, just to pick on the guys) included a guy literally drinking and driving during the middle of a weekday afternoon (he had a Rolling Rock in one hand and the steering wheel in the other), a guy pulled up to my roommate at a light and yelled to my roommate that his back light was broken because it kept "blinking on and off" (the roommate was waiting to turn left), and a couple of Army guys took out a good chunk of an overhead pedestrian walkway over the H-1 one afternoon because they were driving a crane down the highway with it up too far (shut down the H-1 til later that next morning, forcing much of the island into a traffic jam that took hours to get through).

    Honestly, I think distractions and proneness to distraction is completely based on individual people, not the sex of a person. I have seen just as many guys get distracted while driving as I have women. Much of it likely has to do with maturity level and lack of discipline to understand that many things should not be done while driving.
