Drivers with car insurance for women are sometimes the brunt of jokes about poor motoring skills as a result of their gender, but in reality men also have their fare share of accidents.
In December 2009 a study undertaken by Dr Claudia Wolf from Ruhr University in Germany showed that women took, on average, 20 seconds longer to park their cars than men, yet the extra time taken resulted in poorer results.
Commenting on why women are perceived to be less skilled as drivers Dr Wolf said, "These prejudices exist and as a scientist I decided to find out if they are true or based on myth.
"I don't think that feminism or the cause of women is in any way set back by these findings. It only proves what previous studies about the spatial differences between men and women have shown.
"Besides, it is not as if there was a massive failing by women. It is just about parking – not the triumph of men over women."
Furthermore, in several other studies men have been proven, according to the Social Issues Resource Centre, to have a greater number of accidents than women and have also been shown to suffer their first incident earlier on during their driving years than female motorists.
However, whether or not a woman driver feels she is a more accomplished motorist than her male counterparts, there is never any harm in further improving driving skills to become even safer on the roads and, now, car insurance can help all drivers achieve this.
