This Nov. 2, 2012 file photo shows Diane Spitaliere and her pet dog Izzie sitting in her car outside her house in Alexandria, Va. Women have passed men on the nation’s roads. More women now have driver’s licenses than men, a reversal of a longtime gender gap behind the wheel that transportation researchers say is likely to have significant safety and economic implications. Spitaliere, 58, a retired government worker says: “I want to be in my own car for as long as possible. I want to be independent for as long as I can.” (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta, File)
