Yes, it's about who is MORE likely to engage in risky behavior.
Funny, the only one of my kids to crash the car, our daughter. The only one to get a speeding ticket, our daughter. Granted, she has been driving 3.5 years longer than her brother.

From the insurance business.... its not stereotyping, but all teenage drivers are charged more on insurance, not just boys. Teenagers are inexperienced and are more likely to be bad drivers. They will buy you a new car when/if he totals it, so you pay a higher premium just in case and when that time comes.... Parents like us much much more.
