    If you look at table III: Involvement of male and female drivers in the examined crash scenarios. For every type of crash there was there was a lower percentage of female-female than male-male crashes. Wouldn't that mean women get in fewer crashes?
    What they predicted:
    accidents involving two male drivers would make up 36.2 per cent of all crashes

    What they found:
    male/male crashes were much lower at 31.9 per cent. (much lower as in: lower than they predicted - NOT lower than they "found" in comparison to women)

    What they predicted:
    while female/female accidents would account for 15.8 per cent

    What they found:
    Instead, they discovered that accidents involving two women drivers were 20.5 per cent (this makes it higher than they predicted - but not as frequent as male/male accidents)

    What they predicted:
    male/female 48 per cent.

    What they found:
    Accidents involving male and female drivers stood at 47.6 per cent, as expected.



    So - you're right - they simply found that female/female crashes happen more often than previously believed/assumed. Women are not more dangerous than men - women are just more accident prone than previously assumed. . .

    It's not the people misinterpreting the findings - it's the article . . . they got it wrong when they wrote it out. In reality:
    'The results indicate that in certain crash scenarios, male-to-male crashes tend to be under-represented and female-to-female crashes tend to be over-represented.'
    male/male are under-represented
    female/female are over-represented
    male/female are adequately represented.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I know, I am only talking about the response I said you were taking personal.

    Most of them have been yes, but not one I responded to. Either way it is irrelevant.

    All I asked is why you are taking it personal because of one comment and all of a sudden you are over the top.

    The article was later recanted stating that the statistics were incorrect due to the fact the math was done by a woman.
