Whos really to blame for accidents - Men or Women!

I just finished reading a blog by "Angel's Flight", and while I was tickled by the post, it also did something amazing! It made me think!! Now let me warn you that this sort of event happens only once or twice in an year so all of you who read this are actually reading something rare and therefore - amazing! Before I start digressing and forget the reason for writing this blog, let me share my take on the blog.

Angel states the following reasons why she thinks men are bad drivers and women are good drivers. Let me tell you why I beg to differ!

1. About twice as many men as women are killed each year in crashes. Even though Men tend to drive more miles....not twice as much...but just a little more.

My Take: The reason for this is simple. Everyone knows that men and women are opposites - and it is the law of nature that, opposites attract. All the men killed in road accidents are therefore being killed by women drivers. Thus, a higher death of males automatically indicates that there are more bad women drivers on the street!

2. More men tend to have the condition Sleep Apnea, and Drivers with this problem are FIVE times more likely to be in an car accident.

My Take: While I am not going to question the authenticity of these facts, it is important to know how these men got sleep problems in the first place. Women Nag! Men who get nagged by women hardly get time to sleep. This is why they get sleep apnea and sleep deprivation. Thus, the real cause of accidents happening due to this reason are women!

3. A National Safety Council analysis found that men account for 81% of all drivers with blood alcohol concentration .08 or greater who are involved in fatal crashes.

My Take: To avoid being nagged, men go out and get drunk. Then they get a call from the woman who asks the poor drunk guy to get home ASAP! This causes men to get in an accident while being drunk. It is completely unfair to blame men for accidents caused from this scenario.
There is also another theory that could very well be true - Women like free drinks and readily accept them from men. Problem is - like their driving, they don't know when to stop! These drunk women then get into cars - and as we know, opposites attract - they go out and kill more men on the road. Some of these now dead men simply happen to have blood alcohol concentration .08 or greater. The important point to note is - the accident was the woman's fault.

4. Men are more likely to speed.

My Take: Men only speed because they are trying not to be late for a date with their GFs or they are trying to keep up with an appointment with their wives! After all, a smart man would any day risk the possibility of an accident over the certainty of being nagged if he is late!

5. The actual number of men killed in car crashes has declined from the year 1997 to 2007 (48/million to 45/million). This decrease can be attributed to *drum roll please* The number of WOMEN driving has increased!!

My Take: I disagree with this reasoning. I think the number of men killed by women in road accidents only decreased because a higher % of women have become lesbians in recent times. According to the theory of "accidents caused due to attraction" - these women would now target other women instead of men. Thus, the number of men being killed has automatically dropped.

Did you know that the rear-view mirror (no pun intended) was invented by a woman? Now this can be a good thing for driving, but it is important to note how it was invented. A woman, who was applying makeup while she was driving, just happened to accidentally see the road behind her. Thus was born the rear-view mirror.

No wonder manufacturers have started putting vanity mirrors behind sun-visors these days!

To further illustrate why women and makeup can be dangerous, I'll tell you a true story.

A truck driver was trying to pass a mini-van on a hilly road.

The driver encountered a plain stretch of road and it was ok for him to pass the van. He starts to pull alongside to make the pass when a hand darts out of the van and signals the truck to stop. The driver gets back into his lane but does not see any vehicles from the opposite side that would make it unsafe for him to pass.

Thinking that he may have missed seeing something, he waits till he comes upon another stretch of open road. As soon as he starts to make the pass, the hand darts out again to stop him. This frustrates the driver a little bit and he starts smoking a cigarette to regain his composure. He awaits another open stretch of road but no sooner than he starts to make the pass, the hand darts out again to stop him. This happens for another 7 times!

The flustered driver follows the mini-van when it pulls up into a parking spot. The truck driver is angry and demands an explanation from the driver of the mini-van and asks why was he signalled 10 times while trying to pass the van on a clear road?

The WOMAN in the van calmly replies - "oh! Did I stop you from overtaking? I was merely drying the nail polish on my fingers!"

Fascinating! Isn't, it! While you are still reading, let me tell you that the use of makeup by women can also cause accidents on the road when women are not driving. How many men reading this have almost been in an accident because they were busy watching a hottie - wearing makeup - on the street! Women go to great lengths to ensure shorter life span of the male species. Men on the other hand don't bother about their appearance too much! This automatically reduces death among women who drive.

Bottomline - Women are unsafe and dangerous - not only inside, outside but also on top of motorised vehicles - and are still the number 1 reasons for causing accidents on the road. But you don't have to take my word for it. Simply see these video and trust your own eyes...

ha ha ha!!!!!


They want to stare at woman, impress woman and want their life centered around woman and then blame them for all their typical :P

As far as the video is concerned blaaaaah!!!!!! U tak a pic and make a lady stand near it and claim she is the driver...:D

eye-in-sty-in said...

I'm not blaming anyoone - its just scientific research...

as for the video, I didnt make it - and I also dont see any women in the pics objecting to it... if you really want to justify that video - I'll only say - look at the last pic... need I say more?

BRAVO!!! Keep it coming...

Btw, that truck driver story.. that lady why the eff she took out her hands only when an open stretch of road came to confuse the poor truck-waala...

and for "How many men reading this have almost been in an accident because they were busy watching a hottie - wearing makeup - on the street!" ... I have never been.. I do not look left or right or wherever apart from seeing the road and following the traffic.. even if I have a company of a guy friend and he says check out that chick I refuse to turn my head.. My life is too precious for me to give it over a chick-doing-make-up or any random hot-chcik on the streets...

The person who stirred up this post is now here... Howdy Angel!

I agree with you 100% that women are safer drivers ;-) They even make life easy for men and provide them with so much material to make these videos...

Glad to see you have a good SOH.

Good to know that you keep ur eyes peeled to the road. Ur GF must be be very proud of you :-))

I do get distracted easily by these "vile" women ;-) But then I also get distracted by almost anything that moves, walks or talks... I must have ADD :D

Here is something for you.....hehe

Written by a man……………………………….

this morning on the Interstate,
I looked over to my left and there was a
In a brand new
Doing 65 mph

With her face up next to her rear - view mirror
Putting on her eyeliner.
I looked away
For a couple seconds !

And when I looked back she was
Halfway over in my lane,
Still working on that makeup.

As a man,
I don't scare easily.

But she scared me so much;
I dropped my electric shaver ,

Which knocked
The donut out of my other hand.

In all the confusion of trying to straighten out the car

Using my knees against the steering wheel,

It knocked my cell phone away from my ear

Which fell into the coffee between my legs,

And burned : "Big Jim and the Twins " ,

Ruined the darn phone,

Soaked my trousers,

And disconnected an Important call.

.." Stupid women drivers "

I'm glad you see it too :-))

Now only if other women were smart enuf to admit it is their fault, the world would be so much more better.

The things u describe actually happened to one of my friends. SHE was talking to me from her cell while driving n drinking coffee to prevent her form sleeping on the wheel - she turned around to check something in the back seat n spilled the hot coffee in her lap. It was not funny at all!

Liked ur repartee though :-)
