"It's a known fact and has been for some time that many more men are involved in road accidents; about 75 percent of men and 25 percent of women are killed on the roads in Sweden every year," she said.
"Of course men drive more, they spend more time behind the wheel, but you also see from the police statistics that they speed more, they drink more alcohol and overall they take much more risks. If all men would drive like women we would have far fewer accidents."
The number of fatal road accidents on Sweden's roads has reduced by 50 percent in the last ten years and the main reason has been a large scale building programme, especially in the north, where single lane roads have been given added overtaking lanes. Cars are also a lot safer.
