PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - A new survey shows there are more women driving now than men, the first time this has happened since Ford’s “Model T” was the auto of choice.

An unscientific poll of a small group of people indicates that more women behind the wheel is not viewed as a good thing.

“Women are more aggressive drivers,” Andrea Stamps from Glenside said. “They’re not courteous. And men are. That’s the way I see it, so we’re in trouble.”

Joe Discher from Port Richmond has this take.

“We see the women drivers driving a little slow down the street, we’re trying to get around you, I can’t imagine it would be terrible, but not all women are bad drivers. Some of them are good some of them are bad, but there’s bad men drivers too though.”

However, Statistics Brain, an information website which crunches numbers, shows that men have more driving violations than women in reckless driving, DUI, speeding, seat belt violations, signal or stop sign violations and failure to yield.
