It's the Estrogen, Stupid: Why Women Drivers Are Better

Hey guys, no more jokes about The League of Women Drivers holding their annual meeting at the bottom of a ravine; a UK study shows women's brains are more tuned to safe driving then men's. The study found that women have the more facile minds, which are and far better at shifting quickly during tasks like driving, whereas men's brains tend to blindly carry forward like oxen down Mt. McKinley. The difference could be the levels of the hormone estrogen (or oestrogen if you prefer warm beer). The difference shows up in women's lower insurance premiums in the UK, and men's tendency to plow into large objects while checking out the women's, er, facile minds.
