WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — It’s been said that “rules are made to be broken,” but when it comes to driving, men are more likely to do so than women, according to a survey conducted by Response Insurance.

The results revealed that 87 per cent of drivers admit to taking liberties with road rules and driving safety. Male drivers are more likely than women to break the rules in virtually every category raised.

The most dramatic differences between men and women were related to exceeding the posted speed limit when others are doing it (58 per cent of males vs. 48 per cent of females).

“These infractions are widespread and often dangerous,” notes Mory Katz, chairman of Response Insurance. “When it comes to driving, rules are not made
to be broken, they’re made to ensure the safety of drivers and pedestrians.”
