Men much more likely to speed - Brake
Research released last week by Brake, the road safety charity, has found men are more likely to speed compared with women.
The research finds one in three male drivers, compared with one in seven female drivers, admit they drive 35mph or faster in 30mph zones every day or several times a week.
The gender gap is even larger on rural roads. One in five male drivers, compared with one in 16 female drivers, say they drive faster than 60mph on single carriageway rural roads. When it comes to driving on motorways, men are nearly three times more likely to speed. One in five male drivers, compared with one in 14 female drivers, say they drive faster than 80mph on motorways and dual carriageways.
