So it's simple: Men are better drivers than women. Right guys? At least, we THINK we are. That's according to the results of a survey by OnePoll.com . . . which surveyed 3,000 MEN about the subject.
--Here are the Top Ten Complaints Men Have About Women's Driving.
#1.) Lack of concentration. This was the biggest complaint men had: They think that women are distracted too easily by children, scenery, or other drivers.
#2.) Braking too late. Ladies, you know when your guy is worried about this one. It's when he's pushing his foot down into the floormat and pressing against an imaginary brake.
#3.) Tapping the accelerator. In other words, hitting the accelerator inconsistently, which gives the ride a stop-and-start feel.
#4.) Drifting toward the shoulder. Guys don't like it when you let the car drift from side to side in a lane, instead of keeping it in a straight line. Especially if you drift all the way over to the side of the road, and hit those ridges on the shoulder.
#5.) Getting too close to other cars before passing them.
#6.) Braking too hard.
#7.) Fiddling with the stereo.
#8.) Failure to indicate.
#9.) Going too fast.
#10.) Staying in the middle lane / Not trying to pass.
(--You know, I was actually with this list, as long as the items related specifically to women not being AGGRESSIVE enough. But not because I think women should be more aggressive drivers.)
(--Because I know that guys DO tend to be more aggressive drivers. So I could see why that would lead to certain complaints, from their perspective.)
(--But fiddling with the radio? That's way too universal. And so is most of this stuff. It's like an excuse to be sexist or . . . there's no consistent rationale.)
(--Having said that . . . What do people think? Is any of this valid? Guys, what's missing from this list? Personally, I was going to say riding the brake.)
