And, just one more statistic: according to the study in this quirky news article, 51% of children in Australia feel that their dad is the better driver. And we all know children are more honest then adults, so this must be right:
ps- for the record, I've caused more accidents than I've been dragged into by women, and the two big near-misses that I experienced this year were the fault of men, however my wife has caused her fair share of accidents as well.
pps- on talking your way out of tickets, I'm batting better than 50%, but I also live in a relatively lenient state. If I didn't work hard to maintain a clean record and lived in VA or PA my % would be lower.
