    Well, Mr. P only got his driver’s license a month ago! Yes, you heard me right. So yeah, I’m the better driver. Though he’s actually really good.

    i voted me by far.  He drives like an old lady… with apologies to old ladies, because he’s worse than that!

    Oh, man, me by a landslide.  I’ve only seen him drive once and it was because I forced him to practice driving around campus.  He was not happy with me.

    My husband is def a better driver; where he comes from (Minnesota) the police are more diligent about giving out speeding tickets than they are here in CA, so he’s grown up driving the speed limit and thus making better decisions and judgement when it comes to driving 🙂

    My tendency to be impatient makes me the worse driver.

    I’m totally the better driver – he’s a craaaazy driver! Of course, I don’t love to drive, especially in unfamiliar areas, so he drives more often.

    I’d say we’re about even. My ex was the worst driver EVER. I was terrified to be in a car with him.

    Me, hands down.

    While he will try to argue that I have been in more accidents I immediately clarify that I have been hit…never hit someone. He is constantly getting tickets and driving like a maniac.

    Hm, I guess I’d say myself.  I am definitely more cautious then he is.

    BUT if there was ever an incident where a car stalled, a tire went flat, etc.  – he’d probably handle that a lot better than I would.  I’m completely clueless.

    I’d say I’m a safer/more cautious driver but he’s better at making quick maneuvers and he’s better at parking haha. I don’t love to drive, especially in unfamiliar places, so usually when we’re together with a vehicle he drives.

    @sugarpea: I agree with this.  I drive like I’m a 90 year old woman and I’m super careful but I’m not good with areas or situations I’m unfamiliar with.  So he’s better overall and drives way more often.

    We both think that we are the better driver but I am still convinced it is me!

    Darling Husband speeds and has gotten pulled over a bunch of times and has somehow managed to never get a ticket.  He got in one wreck (his fault) when he was 16 or 17.  He just seems to pay attension less when he is driving (misses turns going somewhere he’s been 100 times, doesn’t notice when the light turns green, etc)

    I got rear-ended at 16 (so no fault of my own), slid into a curb on the ice at 17 going less than 10 mph (broke tire rod and hubcap), and rear-ended someone (totally my fault) at 23.  I’ve never been pulled over for speeding.

    My husband. But, he’s also a race car driver, so that helps a lot. He’s been driving since he was 12, and he’s a mechanic, so he can get into anything and drive. He does it everyday. I feel safest in a car when he is behind the wheel

    I try to convince him that he’s the better driver and so should do all the driving.  I hate driving.
