Speed

But don't boast too soon guys… it’s MEN who are more likely to be in an incident.

A nationwide study of driving habits in rental cars by Telematics technology provider, In-Car Cleverness, revealed female customers were more likely to exceed the speed limit than their fellow male drivers.

The interesting findings followed a six month period in which more than 10,000 hire vehicles were monitored.

Analysis

A device - more commonly fitted to private vehicles to lower insurance and company fleets to manage costs - provided analysis that showed women exceeded the speed limit 17.5 per cent more on average. However, women returned far fewer cars to the rental companies with damage than men did.

In-Car Cleverness analysis showed that 84 per cent of the cars returned with dents, scratches, punctures and minor scrapes had been rented by male drivers.

Facts and figures

Overall, the average number of speeding incidents was 57 for men and 67 for women. Female drivers who damaged cars sped more often, averaging 90 speeding cases.
Men who returned vehicles with damage exceeded the speed limit 82 times on average. Paul O’Dowd of In-Car Cleverness, said: ‘While the number of cars damaged by the opposite sexes varies, the behaviours which result in damage are consistently similar. The statistics show a clear correlation between vehicle damage and instances of speeding, harsh braking and acceleration.’ In-Car Cleverness analysis showed men had braked harshly on average 11 times while using the car and women 12 times. This figure was dramatically higher for women who had damaged the cars, with an average of 30 instances of harsh braking recorded. In comparison, men who returned vehicles with damage braked harshly 15 times on average.

So does this evidence settle the argument once and for all?

Not a chance!!
