If all the drivers in the world were women, I am sure road accidents will greatly decrease.
If all the drivers in the world were women, I am sure road accidents will greatly decrease. This statement is a result of my personal observation as a public transport commuter for many years. Men are terrible drivers—I don’t mean all, but generally speaking. There is something about driving that reveals people’s feelings or emotions. I think men associate it with virility or manliness when they can race with other drivers by overspeeding and overtaking the ones ahead of them. When they get cut or overtaken, they swear and curse about how bad that driver is. In our place, our means of public transport are small cabs fitted to a motorcycle. This type of vehicle has not seatbelts whatsoever and the passengers have to find something to hold on to while the vehicle is running. A series of road bumps plus a reckless or thoughtless driver can actually make one feel like you’re inside a washing machine. Many times drivers would run the vehicle full speed, overtake anywhere, make U-turns in highways, and running over dogs on the road. I hate them. This type of drivers should be removed from the streets. On the other hand, women drivers may be slow but where can you see a traffic sign that says DRIVE FAST? It’s always Drive Slow. Women are by nature nurturers and are always aware of others, careful that no living creature gets hit or run over. There may be crazy women drivers like the infamous Lindsay Lohan who drinks and drive, but that’s one in a million. So I humbly suggest that reckless men drivers or those who associate speed with masculinity should now turn over their car keys to women.
