I don't think testosterone has anything to do with precision or accuracy.

Men get more dui's, speed more, take more chances and get more tickets mostly because they have much more attitude when pulled over. I have also yet to deal with a road rage incident where the woman is the aggressor. Even though there have been a few where woman purposely caused an accident due to being pissed off for being cut off.

Men, why do you think that their insurance is higher?

sorry mate but sexist jokes about driving are totally wrong, you shouldn't take jokes as a source of information, they are jokes you know, statistics say that men are really more dangerous in the driver’s seat, they are bolder than women when it comes to breaking the law, it is true that in general women are not such good drivers, when it comes to driving itself, but when it comes to being a threat in roads well guys we are the big winners here

Studies may show that... However, men lack in certain social areas where sharing the road, tea or anything is just not their nature.

This reminds me of a young man I gave a speeding ticket to a few years ago. He tried justifying it and I asked him, what about the kids. He quckly chimed out, "I have no kids in my car."

But I responded, not in your car but in the other cars that you would hit. I then pointed to every car that passed with a childseat and child seated within. See, his social perspective did not extend beyond the boundary of his own car. My point was that it wasn't him I was concerned with, any idiot can kill themselves as far as I am concerned... It is everyone else that idiots place in danger that concerns me. At least on a racetrack, you have similarly calibered idiots who accepts the same risks.

I think where as men as a whole are more capable at performing precise maneuvering of a vehicle, that ability has also lead us to be more aggressive and reckless in how we drive.

Yet studies have shown that men as a whole have better hand-eye coordination and can more easily imagine an object rotating in their mind.

Men having a foot up in spacial awareness then means they would be more inclined to be better drivers, however as I had mentioned before men also tend to be more reckless despite these skills.

Which is exactly why I stated that men, despite having an aptitude for driving skills, are more reckless in how they drive.

Studies have shown that, due to the needs of woman since the beginning, they are worse drivers. Back in the day when the men went out in groups to hunt for food, it was important for the males to be able to navigate. They had to get out, find a heard of animals, and make it back home safely to the family with the daily meal(s). A woman was never bothered with this task and therefore she never passed any navigational skills throughout her DNA.

Sure, some men are reckless, but this is usually suppressed with age. It's unfair to say that men are more aggressive drivers, because this isn't always true. Some men are more aggressive than others from birth. I'm not an aggressive driver and I'm only twenty years old. Some males are capable of using their brain before they react instinctively. I drive safe and am constantly thinking about my surroundings. The only thing that makes us better on the road is the scientifically proven statistics of navigational abilities at birth.
