Are Left-Handed People Better Drivers?
When we saw this study, we figured it was an April Fools' prank . . . anything that says being left-handed is good HAS to be a prank, right?
But . . . a new study found that left-handed people are BETTER DRIVERS than right-handed people.
The study analyzed 1,500 drivers for 10 years and found that left-handed people get into fewer accidents than right-handed people.
The author of the study says, quote, "Because we drive on the right in this country, left-handed drivers may be used to a constant revision of their instincts, keeping them more on their toes and ready to react to sudden threats."
We don't really understand what that means, but his next point makes more sense.
Quote, "Cars are designed with the right-handed driver in mind . . . think especially of the gear shift. This allows right-handed drivers to become complacent" . . . while left-handed people have to pay more attention. (PR Web
