Age-old question answered! Women are the worst drivers

FEMALE drivers are 40% more likely to be involved in an accident per kilometre than men, a new survey has found.

The Private Fleet survey tallied 2403 men and 988 women and analysis showed the former reported being in an accident once every 147,000 kilometres.

Women reportedly admitted to being in an accident once every 123,000km.

Higher annual income was also linked to increased anger behind the wheel, with New South Wales being called home to the country's angriest drivers.

Are women really worse drivers than men?

And despite Queensland's horror road toll, the state reported the safest driving record with only 28% indicating they had been involved in an accident compared to Tasmanian drivers, of which 41% admitted to being in a bingle.
