Women are better drivers than Men



A recent surveys suggests women who work in the field of science have the best driving rating

Munster machos were found to be the riskiest male driver group according  to research conducted by No Nonsense insurance company over the last two years. The data comes from almost two thousand No Nonsense’s SmartDriver customers whose driving has been measured for three months using a clever little device – a state of the art telematics tool – that reveals just how smart their driving is.


Who is the better driver – women or men?

Here are the key driving differences revealed in the data:

  • Women in their 20s outdrive men with better scores than their young male counterparts with regard to accelerating, harsh braking and cornering.
  • Connacht has the highest percentage of safe female drivers (82%).
  • When it comes to over acceleration, guys perform worse (69%) than girls (62%).
  • Dublin damsels were the least likely to brake harshly (62%) and just under half (44%) never triggered an acceleration incident.
  • By contrast, Munster machos were found to be the riskiest male driver group (39%).
  • Women who work in the science and/or engineering field have the best driving rating (72%).
  • Of all occupations and professions, teaching has the highest proportion of safe male drivers (71%).
