In the battle of the sexes, which gender is more vicious on the road?

A new survey of 1,000 people (500 men and 500 women) has found the women are more likely to give the finger to another driver while behind the wheel. They’re also more apt to curse in front of their children while driving.

Forty-four percent of women say they’ve used blue language while driving, compared to 30% of men. As for flipping the bird, 31% of women have done so, while only 27% of men say they have.
