Boy this is a can of worms subject
I think women drive much more conservatively regarding speed and pushing a car.
I have been noticing in the past few years a trend of some women drivers being less patient then before. Sitting right on my back bumper when I drive conservatively. I really notice it when I first drive the P-car in the AM and I'm trying to just warm it up
My wife is very conservative driver. She is always concerned with my speed.
She comments on my patients and dialog I have regarding other drivers around me doing stupid stuff.
BUT when she gets behind the wheel, she has much to criticize. I don't think she hears herself

Not touching beyond agreeing with kk2002s on women having become noticeably less patient in the last few years (lots of agressive tailgating.

I'll just say that spatial awareness sure does come in handy for things like driving, flying, etc.

Estrogen and spatial awareness don't go together.

The bigger the SUV, the worse the problem!

I feel that the don't have the same reaction and awareness as guys do so it an instant when they need to make a split second decision they freeze up. I've seen this happen many times and if I wasn't there to turn the wheel I might not be here right now

In a lot of instances (that I've seen), a touch more "me first" arrogance, entitlement attitude, and "hurry hurry hurry" mindset. Not a blanket/absolute statement by any means.

Women are usually safer other than a larger tendency to text and a worse house of vehicle in the beginning asana go for massive SUVs. Other than that they are generally much better drivers and less daring to speed. I do notice more females taking chances in parking lots and traffic though with the lack of patience carrying over.
