Lady Drivers = Bad?

alright alright, before you get your feathers ruffled. first up, i'm female too, though not a driver. Anyway, this came from my dad. He was driving me back from practice just a few minutes ago, and just in front of us, there was a car (female driver) the sped real fast from behind and tried to cut in front of a cab in front of us. Well, they ALMOST collided. But it was avoided when the cab driver jammed his break. When we drove pass that FAST car, my dad made a remark. "Female driver.. no wonder." Now, this might sound very stereotypish, but are all female drivers bad drivers? I don't think so. I think some men are also reckless in their driving.

As far as driving is concerned, it does not matter whether you are a male or female driver. The thing is whether you can drive properly or not. That is why the drivin gteacher has got a very great responsibility. He has to create a great driver out of his student.

My problem with female drivers is with the ones who drive too slow and or too timid. This can be just as problematic as drving recklessly. What I see with men most often is a lack of patience and a lot of road rage. People tend to drive according to their personality and if someone is frm a place where more people rely on public transportation and taxis I don't want them to drive me because they are not as experienced at those who drive daily. As far as your father's comment goes, don't be offended but it reflects his attitude toward women in general. People often say things without realizing the impact of those statements and how it makes them look. He probably would be surprised if someone told him what he said could be seen as negative.
