Busting the myth of female drivers
No doubt you’ve heard the childish and sometimes rude jokes about female drivers (usually about them being unsafe or ‘bad’ drivers). So, is there any truth to this?
According to the statistics, not really. In 2018, male drivers accounted for a staggering 74.3% of the total 1,145 road fatalities on Australian roads.¹ In fact, men had made up the majority of road fatalities each year since at least 2009.
This is only to say that, regardless of gender, all of us may encounter dangers on the roads, which is why we should all consider the right protection when behind the wheel.
A comprehensive car insurance policy can help pay for the cost to repair or replace your vehicle, as well as anyone else’s expenses involved in accidents where you are at fault. It also covers your expenses if a third party isn’t responsible for an accident (e.g. storm damage).
