The number of women with driving licenses is now 49.95%. They will exceed men in the next two or three years, according to a report by Frost & Sullivan, launched on June 25 at an urban mobility workshop in London, where it will look at how the empowerment of women is transforming the automotive industry.
In other news, the Association of British Insurers says drivers aged 17-24 are responsible for a disproportionately high number of crashes, deaths and claims. They are calling for an overhaul of the system which would involve a ban on intensive driving courses, introduction of a new ‘graduated’ license for the first 6 months and an earlier start learning date at the age of 16 and a half.
