Statistics have shown that there are currently more women that hold a driver’s license opposed to men. In recent years, the number of women that own a car has also risen. Additionally, it has been shown that women are now clocking more mileage and taking more trips in a vehicle than men. With a large number of women on the roads, including our local #Atlanta highways, many myths have evolved regarding women and their driving. A certain stigma has seemed to stick, and it is not uncommon to hear the familiar phrase: “You aren’t a very good driver, so I’ll drive us this time.” Although this stigma exists, it is a known fact that women have a lower calculated risk opposed to men when it comes to driving. Below are a few common myths surrounding women drivers.
