In today’s installment of government funded studies that reveal the obvious is a study from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration: men are more likely to engage in risky behavior than women.  Maybe that’s why men traditionally pay higher insurance premiums.  

Here is a direct quote from an article about the study, breathtaking in quantifying the obvious:

Men drive more dangerously than women, according to a new report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Men are 3.4 times more likely to drive recklessly, three times more likely to be caught driving drunk and three times less likely to use a seat belt. They are 27% more likely to be found at fault in an accident. The study also found that men make up 76% of all driver fatalities. KIVI-TV (Boise, Idaho) (03/25)

Wow.  Thanks for the great information.
