If you’re familiar with Freakonimics, you either think it’s bunk or genius. In a recent column for the New York Times, Eric A. Morris posited that men are at the wheel more often than women when both are in a car. Take that as you will, but he then followed up with how readers responded. One-hundred-eighty-three of the respondents said the man in the relationship drove most of the time, versus only 51 saying the woman drove.

Well, guess what? It’s time for another poll, dear readers. If you’re in a relationship, let us know who drives more, the man or the woman. I’m also adding an answer for folks in a situation like mine. When we’re in my wife’s car, she drives nearly 100% of the time. When we’re in my car — and obviously test cars — I drive nearly 100% of the time.
