Do Men File More Auto Insurance Claims Than Women?
Some people (mostly men) think that men make better drivers than women.
Is this actually true? Are men really better?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's 2004 Early Edition Report, male drivers were involved in 27,000 more fatal accidents, 432,000 more injury crashes and 1,369,000 more property-damaged incidents than female drivers - which inevitably equated to 1,828,000 more insurance claims in a single a year. Men have more accidents and make more claims. It looks like women make better drivers after all.
And it's not just male drivers between the ages of 18-24 that are making these insurance claims - it's men of all ages.
