BOY racers and young men have more expensive crashes than female drivers.
New research from car insurance specialist elephant.co.uk has revealed that accidents involving men aged under 25 cost on average 15 per cent more than those involving women of the same age.
Furthermore, the cost of accidents involving male drivers of all ages is six per cent higher than accidents involving women.
Elephant.co.uk managing director, Brian Martin, said: “Since passing our driving tests most of us might have picked up some bad habits and probably don’t give too much thought to improving our driving skills. But driving well can mean more than just keeping out of trouble on the roads.
“At a time when most of us are trying to save money, as well as demonstrating how best to control your car, our films also reveal how smooth and efficient driving can help your car perform at its peak and be more cost efficient.”
To help improve the driving ability of both men and women, elephant.co.uk has joined forces with Fifth Gear’s Tim Shaw and made three short films which can help any motorist learn how to drive like a professional and control their car should they get into trouble.
The insurance videos contain tips and advice from a professional driver and reveal how to manage a car if it begins to skid, how to corner safely and why vision is so important when it comes to reacting quickly and braking in a safe manner.
