Judge rules men are better drivers than women

A judge in Spain has ruled that men are better drivers than women.

The ruling stemmed from a discrimination case in which a company offering driving lessons was charging women more than men.

Autoescuela Zaragoza charged men $900 and women $1,170 because it claimed female students needed an average of five more classes than male students before they were ready to get a driver's license.

The company was fined $5,000 for discrimination, so they took the case to court.

The judge overturned the fine because he said there is statistical proof that men really are better drivers than women.

He cited official traffic statistics from the Spanish government that said, "Every single year, men displayed greater dexterity and better open-road skills."
