STUDY: 30% of you are genetically predisposed to drive poorly

  2. There is no 'bad driver' gene.
    That's a load of shit.

    But genetics do determine your quality of eyesight, hearing, speed of reflexes, ability to learn and process information, and hand-eye coordination - which are things you use to operate a vehicle.

    Just like some people are better at tennis or soccer or maths than others, some people are naturally better drivers due to the physical abilities that make them up.

    Just remember, everyone who has a licence has passed the minimum requirements to be a 'competent driver'. This study is really quite irrelevent with regards to improving road safety or changing people's attitudes on the roads.
  3. What a load of fetid dingo's kidneys!

    Mind you, if it's used to stop some bogans driving, then bring it on :LOL:.
  4. Next theyll be finding a gene which determines your propensity to published flawed and trivial bullcrap
  5. The female population only makes up 30%? What a load of garbage.
  6. =D> Nice one.

  7. yeah set up a booth at the rta. walk in. get scanned. if you pass walk out. if not you drop into the floor and are turned into pig food. around here you would just need to keep the hole open so as they walk in they just keep on falling.
