Boys v. Girls: Which Teens Are the Better Drivers?

Do gender stereotypes hold any weight in terms of teen drivers?

Stereotypes reinforce the discrimination of minorities no matter how “innocent” or “playful” the majority may find them. One such stereotype is that women are inferior drivers to men, more specifically–for the purposes of this article–that boy teenage drivers are superior to girl teenage drivers. If you have teen boys and girls, you know how heated this debate can get. Auto insurance in Banning can only do so much to financially protect your car.

When debates at the kitchen table get intense, it is time to look at the numbers and data. Data cannot lie; it is objective and impartial: the perfect arbitrator for all matters. Let’s take a look at what the data has to say about boys v. girls: which teens are the better drivers?

Male Teen Drivers

According to the study, boys are not as conscientious as girl drivers. Male teenage drivers are not as good at driving as they seem to implicate:

  • Boys are more aggressive when it comes to their decisions and movements;
  • They are involved in more off-road accidents like in parking lots or shoulders of the road;
  • Males have more accidents after sunset and during the weekends.
  • The mortality rate for a male driver aged 16 to 19 is near twice as great as their female counterparts.

Female Teen Drivers

Female drivers, while safer, were not perfect and can always improve.

  • Less decisive at intersections, which leads to more accidents;
  • 28 percent more likely to drive with a restricted license;
  • Get into more accidents during the weekday–not the weekend.
