A study of traffic violations, collisions and insurance statistics of American men and women found women were much better drivers.

According to a safe driving study, about 80 percent of all fatal and serious U.S. car crashes were caused by male drivers.

The study found women were 27 percent less likely than men to cause crashes!

Men had higher traffic violations in almost every single category -- reckless driving, failure to yield, seat belt violations or speeding.

Men weren't just worse drivers, they are worse at making good driving decisions.  For example, driving under the influence and driving while intoxicated, male violators outnumbered females 3-to-1.

The study found the average six month policy for a man costs $765 while it costs $698 for a woman.
