Study shows statistically, women are better drivers than men

Men are ruder, meaner and more likely to crash while driving than women, a survey has found. According to insurance company AAMI, 55 per cent of the men surveyed also admitted to drink driving, compared to 30 per cent of women.

The statistics, based on a telephone survey of 2384 drivers and AAMI claims data collected last year, revealed that men are more likely to act aggressively behind the wheel. The study found that 47 per cent of men and 38 per cent of women have rudely gestured at other drivers.

And 84 per cent of men have crashed their vehicle, compared to 77 per cent of women. “Our claims data shows that men's crashes tend to be more serious than women’s,” AAMI spokesman Geoff Hughes said.

“They are more likely to be involved in head-on collisions, roll-overs and loss-of-control crashes, as well as crashes involving pedestrians, cyclists and animals.” Women are more likely to be involved in relatively minor crashes such as reversing into stationary objects.

“Women use more parts of their brain to undertake tasks and furthermore, differences in men's and women's neurological processing can advantage women. However, the female brain is not as good at spatial relationships, so it is not surprising that they strike stationery objects more frequently than men.”

The survey also revealed that:

– 51 per cent of men have been distracted by billboards while driving, compared to 40 per cent of women.

– 46 per cent of men and 36 per cent of woman admitted to verbally abusing another driver. Source.

People try calling Brad Pitt, get elderly dude instead

Seventy-seven-year-old Richard Perkins is no Brad Pitt. When Perkins' phone rings, it's probably someone who wants to speak to the Hollywood hunk.

Perkins' New Hampshire phone number is listed on a celebrity Web site as a way to reach Brad Pitt. The retired teacher says he had to leave his phone off the hook to get some sleep.

But his Life Alert system took the dead phone as a call for help. Firefighters burst into his house only to find him sitting in his living room. Perkins says he has no idea how his number ended up the Internet. Article here.

200 college kids were naked, celebrating graduation

As many as 200 students decided to celebrate graduation at Concordia, Minnesota College by skinny dipping in a murky campus pond early Monday, authorities said.

A security officer tried to shoo the students out of the pond but they wouldn't cooperate, Concordia security chief Sherri Arnold said. Moorhead police were called after students pushed the security officer's golf cart into the pond.

Police estimated that when they arrived on the scene, about 50-75 students were in various states of undress and fleeing, but no one was naked. Although no one was arrested, several people could face charges for damage to the cart. Arnold said 10 people were identified because they left their clothes and wallets behind. Article here.
