On the flip-side, IIHS also reported that from 1975 to 2003, female deaths in motor vehicle crashes increased 14 percent compared to an 11 percent decline for male motorists during that same period. Insurance industry executive Daniel W. pegs the rise in female deaths in vehicular crashes to more women obtaining driver's licenses than in the past and driving more miles than, say, 25 years ago.

"We're also seeing women driving more aggressively, picking up that bad habit from their male counterparts," points out , director of personal lines-auto for the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI), an insurance trade organization based in Illinois. believes that there are more women drivers, because more females hold down jobs today than a quarter-century ago. "All these factors lead to more deaths among women drivers and their auto insurance costs are rising in direct proportion to their accident and death rates from crashes."

"Reckless driving used to be the province of male drivers as opposed to women," says III's Carolyn Gorman. "We're seeing more and more examples these days of women driving aggressively and exhibiting road rage, which represent poor behavior behind the wheel."

"If trends continue as the data suggest," said IINC's Tully Lehman, "you could start seeing a closing of the gap of car insurance rates between male and female drivers, but for the time being at least, the gap will still remain much as it is today."

Want to know what really sucks about this? While it is cool on an ego side of things, that just means they aren't going to get a discount, so those of us that are married, or dating and paying the whole insurance bill, it is going to go up as a whole. I wish theirs would stay low to counter our high charges.

Help me here:
1. It's our fault because we incorrectly instructed you in the fine art of driving.
2. It's our fault because we continually aggravate you on a daily basis nurturing aggressive tendencies that manifest while operating motor vehicles.

Which one again?
My wife does the same thing, everything that happens that she doesn't like she blames on me and the rest of my male buddies...
