It’s official, more women than men have reduced the amount they drive in an effort to curb their carbon emissions. Research commissioned by the Environmental Transport Association has found that 16 per cent of men who drive are ‘not worried too much’ by the fact their cars pollute, while only 6 per cent of British women hold this attitude.

Spokesperson for the ETA, Yannick Read had this to say about women drivers: “Women find it easier to reduce their reliance on cars possibly because they are more open minded about the alternatives to driving – they appear generally more optimistic than men about the changes they can make to the environment.”
