Driving gender

Today's total stats

When I was driving at the speed limit on three commuting trips I counted the men and women that I encountered:

Men I overtook            34
women I overtook        15
Men passing me           41
Women passing me      20


Two thirds of those breaking the speed limit were men, but you have to consider how many of each gender were on the road.
Proportion of the men who drove too fast            55%
Proportion of the women who drove too fast        57%

Conclusion (based on this limited sample and questionable method)

Women are worse drivers than men.

I will keep counting!
