Women Can`t drive Anyway

It is kind of funny that women are having their human right to pay as much motor insurance as men ( Thank-you EU , another triumph). The problem I have with it is that it seems to imply that women can drive which, as we all know,is about half true.
Women have as many accidents as men when they are young its just that they are less serious ( because they drive so slowly ). Then it evens up ( despite the fact men drive far more miles) and men finally do better in old age.
So the only time when men have not more but worse accidents is under 25 when they learning to be better drivers by taking more risks and driving fast .In terms of skill men are always vastly better .
Women can drive ..literally .. cats can swim ..if pushed there is a even a type of Kangaroo which has learnt to climb trees . It does not come naturally though and its always worth pointing that out.
Woman- Know your place

Well you'll have to do better than that then.
It must be an awful shame for you though, if what you say is true - I thought you were a believer in the free market. Must be very galling to you to admit that regulation is a good thing and that all of these companies were wrong.
What did that old witch used to say? 'You can't buck the market' or something like that. Still, she was mad.

Another barmy thing that should never have been legislated for. I don't see why the insurance companies can't charge differently for men and women according the risk they pose? What next, insurance companies banned from charging younger drivers higher premiums on the basis that it is age discrimination?!

Yes, and isn't it discriminatory that people with terminal illnesses are discriminated against by life insurance companies?

References anyone? Seems to me that women pay less because they represent less risk to insurance companies. Simply put: fewer payouts and/or lower amounts. Given that we are, for the most part, talking about cars in motion I'd say defining them as safer holds water. Or maybe men just forget to lock their cars more often. Again: references for statements please.

Even better, pension companies will now have to offer the same annuity rates to women as they do to men,instead of paying women smaller pensions because they live longer. Worth paying a few bob extra on your car insurance when you're young for, imo.
