Driven Crazy

Honda has published a guide for female Japanese drivers.Their pamphlet (in Japanese) will "erase all your fears about driving," the car maker claims. Assuming you have any, that is. "We would like to let all women know how to drive safely. We would like to minimize accidents of women drivers," a Honda spokesman said. The guide has instructions: How to pump gas by yourself, how to safely transport children and pets and, how to park. Are chicks dumb? Why a guide just for women? Where's your guide for men? Do women suck at driving? Are women worse drivers than men? "We don't think so," the spokesguy said. "There are some specific cases of women drivers, and we focus on those cases." Huh. Fascinating.
