    I agree; it’s an interesting question. I would argue that before the answer can be addressed, though, we need to know exactly what we mean by “best” drivers. If one were talking about precision — the aspect men tend to pride themselves upon — and perhaps spatial awareness, then the answer might indeed lean towards men. But if we are talking about safety then it becomes a whole different ball-game. It’s a fact that, per mile driven, women may get more bumps and scratches on their cars but they are certainly involved in fewer crashes that involve serious injuries or deaths. So women are safer, and in my book that certainly equates with “better” drivers. 🙂
