Female drivers more law-abiding than male: report

Updated 2017-05-04 09:30:28 Xinhua

Among drivers holding 10-year driving license in China, women have less traffic offenses than men, the Traffic Management Bureau of the Ministry of Public Security (MPS) said in a report on Wednesday.

In China, drivers must renew their driving licenses after six years. Those with better disciplinary records can then apply for ten-year licenses.

Drivers with six to ten years of driving experience are less prone to break traffic rules.

A total of 179 million licensed drivers in China have 10-year driving licenses, around 96.9 percent of drivers with more than six years of experience.

As the number of licensed drivers has increased, traffic accidents and deaths have dropped by 58.8 and 40.9 percent from 2004 to 2016 respectively, the MPS report showed.
