Who does car accidents men or women?
This might be an interesting debate
Men and women are both responsible for care accidents and I will start with women:
There must be some reasons for women to lead the car accidents world wide, I am not saying that women are careless, one of the reasons is because speaking on the phone or using make up while driving , please have a look at this web site where it says that half a million of car accidents are caused by women
http://www.accidentsdirect.com/car-accidents-news/12764552-half-a-millio...
Car accidents caused by women was less before but now the accidents caused by women are reaching those caused by men and you can see the sight below:
http://news.softpedia.com/news/Car-Crashes-Caused-by-Women-Increase-Alar...
Car accidents caused by men are more serious please see this:
http://www.car-accidents.com/pages/car-crash-men-woman.html
Also in many countries there are studies which shows that more car accidents are caused by men but this might not be accurate, for example if in a country 70 % of the drivers are men and 30 % are women then it almost normal that more car accidents will be caused by men in that country .
So what do you think?
Did you see more women or more men causing car accidents?

Sometimes I believe that this is a good reason to talk to a auto donations company. It is a lot easier to get rid of your car and in this way you will know for sure that no accident is ever gonna happen to you.

Not that easy to write sarcasm on the internet, luckily, spambots do not feel bad about any replies. They are cold !#$%^& that lay their eggs and forget all about them... They don't even check that their children are still alive. :P

deepb, ok then, a big text segments, picking the most appropriate ones according to the page topic, inserting a few, inserting a link, inserting a few more... Makes sense... In the back-end, it could also harvest some more text from the page, and add it to its database.

Great algorithm.

(p.s. I was being sarcastic when I said human... What was posted was indistinguishable from a human by any kind of algorithm, this could easily pass gmail's spam filters).

It's me. It's my fault. I'm the one who causes all the traffic accidents in Doha. I like to drive way too fast, tailgate, weave in and out of traffic, I don't signal, I talk on one phone while I text on the other all while looking for a good CD in the backseat of the car while doing 120 down Salwa Road in rush hour traffic. Beware! Female driver on the loose!

I guess you are referring to reckless (without care) driving not the rash (without considering).

I am driving in the gulf countries for the past 15 years and have rolled my car (Land cruiser) twice (1999 Abu Dhabi) 2004 (Dukhan).

By anonymous• 12 years 4 months ago.

Driving while talking on the phone or with a child on your lap are part of rash driving. It just doesn't have to be over-speeding.

I used to drive in Delhi, one of the most mismanaged traffic systems at that time and never had an accident but here they take it to a totally different level.

Sure, if you don’t have a driving license you shall not be driving here. Rash driving dose not always end-up in an accident, if the other driver pays attention to rash drivers can also avoid accidents. By the way, it is not the rash driving within the city areas which causes accidents it is the mobile phone or child on your lap while driving.

I mean how can you classify that mostly men cause accident or mostly women cause accident. No gender has the proprietary claim to rash driving. I don't drive here and am very thankful at times that I am not, I see people from both genders driving like nut-cases.

Men and women do not drive the same number of miles under the same conditions. Men do about 60-65% more driving than women. Studies show that woman take shorter trips and female drivers have a greater number of minor crashes than do men. However men are still 70% more likely to be in a serious crash.

In Saudi women don't drive so there are rarely accidents and it is one of the safest places on earth to drive.

talking too much on the phone and they are an enigma for me too. i am at a loss about what those women talk about!

But, generally women are more careful in giving signals, yielding and speeding.. women don't believe in performing stunts while driving etc,etc,etcc

In western countries women drive as much as men, and still have less serious accidents. But its a small percentage of men that cause the difference in stats, those in the 18-25 age bracket who drive like idiots. When you see swirling rubber tyre-tracks on the road in the morning you can bet it was a man who made them. In this country I've seen horrific driving by both men and women. (cell phone in one hand, coffee in the other, no seatbelts, and changing lanes erratically all at the same time)

By Straight Arrow• 12 years 4 months ago.

women speak more on the phone while driving and specially when they go out from parking they go out while speaking and this will cause to have more accidents caused by women.

more cautious behind the wheels but qatar has broken this stereotype. i see women driving as recklessly as men here. i would say both are responsible, but the scale is a little tipped over to men's side..

net result is MEN CAUSE MORE ACCIDENTS.

Traffic department has to be more strict in issuing driving license to both men and woman.

I still remember those days when it was so difficult to get driving license in Qatar. Anyone use to pass the test they would throw a big party on their achievement. But now it seems so easy to get a driving license... any tom, dick and harry passes the driving test...

I do not know why is it so... but I humbly request the traffic department to look into this matter in order to avoid accident in future....

Thank you!!!

Pardon my ignorance, I thought Malbaris was another name for you Indians. Every Indian I met here is a Malbari.

They do this funny thing when they do statistics and percentages Lebaneseman, they take into account those things and calculate the statistics accordingly. So while there may be less women driving, the stats are comparable.

Olive beacause simply the percentage of men driving is much more than women.

It's not about reckless driving ( putting feet ion dashboard, talking on cell phones,...) that causes accidents. In face some drivers especially women don't know the basics of driving.

When I say only I mean mostly. Of course some women get in major accidents, but it's nowhere near as many as men do.

I don't agree that women only get in small accidents. A local lady in a Hummer nearly rammed me at high speed at a small roundabout recently. I had to break so hard that my heart was in my mouth, for the next few minutes. Then this genius drove with the left side of the wheels right over the r/a and went. If not for it being a H2, I think it would've flipped over. If I was in the way, then I would be in the hospital for a while....
