    Segment Transcript

    American Automobile Association Manager of Driver Training Dr. Bill Van Tassell says there are differences in why men versus women crash. Van Tassell: "I would say the most recent thing, information that I've seen about the differences in men and women were about intersections. When there is a crash, the reasons for the crash tend to differ between men and women. There is still a crash, but what this research found was that women were, the crashes were more likely to be attributable to say distraction, inattention, and with males it usually more likely to be attributable to some illegal event, like speeding or running a yellow light or something like that. So hard to judge which is worse, there's still a crash but with men it seemed to be more willful or intentional. I'm choosing to drive this way, I'm choosing to do an illegal act. If I had to choose I'd probably be chatting with the males first, say hey this isn't the intersection's fault it's your fault."  For more information check out CarPro.com. With Today’s Auto News, I’m Laura Reynolds.
