In Poland, amongst the men there is a unwritten law, glued to the back of our brains - a car with an automatic transmission is not a car. It's a dishonor for a male to ride on a thing with that evil invention in it.
Ok., maybe as a passenger while woman drives. Then it is perfectly fine, although riding with woman is also somewhat degrading to pride. The only exception is that, when you're drunk or having too much alcohol in your blood to be allowed to driving (wich is quite low - 0,2%).
Aaand for that as an introduction.
We had elderly behind the wheel, now I tell you what's my morning nightmere every time when I drive to and back to work.
You see, my city has a big street connecting it with country's capitol city Warsaw where I work at. Everyone commutes by it. And, when I was younger (and without licence) there wasn't as much traffic jams as there are today. You know, I had my own conclusions, but, due the fact that I'm often called a chauvinist & so on, I needed a professional opinion.
So, one of my favourite buildings in Warsaw, where my dad friends work at - Central Statistic Office. I checked the rate of light accidents and major traffic jams in Warsaw from 2004. And there was about 45% rise in light accidents, while there was 30% of a rise of a serious traffics (minor are monitored by police only). Now, the funny thing was written next to it - a letter K (Kobieta - Female)
next to 38% of light accidents, and 22% next to traffic jams.
So my own conclusion was right :STATISTICLY
women can't drive!
And they're making my streets unable for driving! Get a bus! Have a heart! Or learn to drive!
