Male motorists are two-and-a-half times more likely to break the law than females.
Survey results released this week by Confused.com thhave sited that male motorists are two-and-a-half times more likely to break the law than females.
Confused.com, an internet price comparison service revealed that speeding was the cause of 76 per cent of the convictions.
Although men came out worst overall with 73 per cent penalised for their speed, speeding also accounted for 84 per cent of female driving offences.
Debra Williams, managing director at Confused.com, said:
“Women have been historically labelled as the most dangerous drivers, but our latest research dispels this myth by revealing the shocking truth that men are two-and-a-half times more likely to be convicted than their vigilant female counterparts. Perhaps these new findings will encourage men to admit that women are naturally more careful drivers, not least because many of them are used to ferrying children and their partners to and fro.”
The study also found that men were seven times more likely to be caught driving without due care and attention than women, and twice as likely to be stopped for failing to comply with traffic light signals.
