I am a left hander and when this story was released yesterday I thought for sure this was an April fools joke right?

A new study found that left-handed people are better drivers than right-handed people.

The study analyzed 1,500 drivers for 10 years and found that left-handed people get into fewer accidents than right-handed people.

The author of the study says, quote, “Because we drive on the right in this country, left-handed drivers may be used to a constant revision of their instincts, keeping them more on their toes and ready to react to sudden threats.”

Quote, “Cars are designed with the right-handed driver in mind . . . think especially of the gear shift. This allows right-handed drivers to become complacent” ,while left-handed people have to pay more attention.
