More women have driver’s licenses than men, says a study from the University of Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute, reversing a longtime driving gender gap. According to the AP, the percentage of young adults with driver’s licenses is dropping over all, but dropping faster with young men. Researchers say the shift is likely to lead to safer, smaller, more fuel-efficient cars, fewer miles driven, lower fatality rates, the end of global warming, more collaborative parallel parking, less honking at people who know the light has turned green but just wanted to finish making this one point really quick, and Car Lashes for everyone.
