Actually insurance isn't based at who'* more at fault. Men are more deadly when the wreck then women. Although the two worst things i see, are the 80 year olds who come into drive thru at work, and they breathe harder when they hand me their money, can barely turn their neck to look at me, and are driving a 5000lb van. How can she turn the wheel (let alone hit the pedals) if handing money out the window is hard?? The second thing is the soccer moms in suburbans and H2s and such, chatting on the cell phone etc. I've asked an H2 owner (woman around 30 i'd say) how she liked her car. Said she loved how it made her feel, and it was fast (yeah uh huh). These soccer moms are bad when they are on the phone, have kids with them and are more worried about their behavior then their driving behavior, doing makeup, or gettting pissed cause i'm "going to fast". Nothing against women, i know women can be great drivers, but it seems they don't look at driving the same as men do *most of the time*

I also hate the people who yell at me in my neighborhood, like SLOW DOWN, or TURN IT DOWN.... I never really know what they are saying, but i don't speed in my neighborhood, i know there are kids around every corner. A friend of mine was driging thru this neighborhood, and he has a 2wd dodge dakota. Well one wheel gets all the power on that pretty much, and it chirped around a corner (like most trucks would) A lady gets in the road and gets his plates, tries to kinda get infront of him, calls the cops. Cops come when he'* sitting down with his parents of course.

Whats even more scary is. There was a study done in the UK and they found something like, you were 20% more dangerous and reckless driving with a cell phone, than you were at the .08 BAL. If people get arrested for a .08 BAL why dont people get arrested talking on the cellphone? (non hands free)

Still, talking to someone in real life is different than on the phone. When someone else is in the car theres another set of eyes. Any real co-pilots keep an eye out for you, assist in feeding, and drinking. Mapping locations and radio settings.

I think the "Parking Brake Chimer" you want is ususally the fact that you have to push the pedal to the floor in order to move at all. But that'* just me,

My chimer comes on when the parking break peddle is lowered the slightest bit.

What'* the point in arguing?? I'm outnumbered. Yea ok all women drivers SUCK.
Yea, i've touched a light post when I was backing up and i was looking at murdock. Yea in the winter i turned at an intersection and my car slid sideways. and Yea i've been rear ended before but that wasn't my fault.
But there are a hell of a lot more men who have done stupider, more careless and reckless things.
you know this is stupid...I don't have a ***** and i'm not pumped with testosterone and agression and that makes me and every other girl out there a bad driver. That'* why I drive a Bonneville I guess. You can't be too safe when you're a crappy driver and there'* half the population of men driving around too.
Let'* just leave it at that.

She never did scare me while she was driving... That was cool as hell... All I can say is if you can't drink a cola, or smoke and drive the car than you have no reason to have a cell phone... Its no fun being ran off the road at 80mph... I'll bet you drive better than Drifter...LOL

Oh come on jr...i have more fight in me than that I was being totally sarcastic to these guys who keep putting down women drivers.
