"There are more women drivers, by quantity, than men ... but men drive more, longer, and farther than women.  So, you'd expect more violations/ accidents on average.  I doubt insurance has all that nuanced a view of…"

"I have never understood that. From my own experience I recall more females totaling their cars than males. Usually if you ask a guy how they got a particular dent, scratch or other blemish on their car they know when, where and how it happened.…"

"We joke about women drivers but its usually men that are worse hence we pay more for car insurance. In Europe this was recently challenged since it discriminates against men, The courts agreed and now women have to pay as much as men. Yay equality:)"

"I drive near 100% of the time when my wife and I are in the car together.  Only real exception is when we're on a really long car trip and I've just had it.  I handed over the driver's seat on the second day of a Disneyworld…"

"If there are no female drivers of course the world would be much safer but who would you flirt with? The lonely truck drivers? Life needs a bit of spice, excitement and near death experiences. "

"I guess I do the driving about 70% of the time.  On a date I almost always drive and I open the door for my wife. My wife is not a good driver but insists she is only a bad driver when I ride with her. I claim she only notices it when I ride…"

"Who would ever want another female driver on the road? If you have a choice always drive never let a female drive anywhere if you can help it. It is safer for everybody involved if you drive.  "

"That is between you and your lady. My wife pays the bill when we dine out.  It comes out of the same account so it does not matter between us who deals with it.  That being said I find it amusing how often I am give the check rather then…"

"I agree with the taking charge bit for dating. Being a passenger is very passive. What woman wants to date a passive man?"

"expectation? I suppose that depends on the woman and your relationship. My wife likes to drive, as do I. I mind driving over long distances less than she, but she's happy to as well...  I tend to drive on the weekends, because I…"

"If you are dating or want to date this person, yes, be the driver. If this is an acquaintance or even a good friend you want to keep that way, then no; do whatever is mutually satisfactory."

Are men expected to drive?

Is it the Man's job to drive?  Chauffering a lady seems like a gentlemanly act. I understand that a gentleman grants favors easily and freely. So it seems gentlemanly to drive when a lady would consider it a favor.While I don't particularly enjoy driving, I am fine with stoically taking up the duty when my lady is in need.But my question is; is there an implied expectation that men drive women? Am I failing my manly duty by not assuming constantly that I should be the one driving? See More
