The National Highway Transportation & Safety Administration have concluded in a study that women drivers between the ages of 21-30 are 25.9% more likely to die in a crash than men in the same age group.
Why you ask? Well according to the NHTSA, it is because men are bigger and stronger than women and more like to survive the violent impact of a dangerous collision.
The NHTSA study goes on to state as men and women age the discrepency between the ages minimizes and levels out at about the age of 70 where the risk of dying in a car crash is almost equal.
The best statatistic about the study itself is that fact that the risk of dying in a car crash has dropped 42% from 1995 -2002. This is attributed to more people wearing seat belts and the safety designs of the airbag and the vehicles themselves.
