I am not sure if this is a super-nice gesture to honor and treat women special, or an implication that women are terrible at parking and need ‘special parking spaces‘ due to their inability to otherwise park correctly! But the mayor of the small German town of Triberg has found a way to draw attention to his fair city. Mayor Gallus Strobel has designating 12 spaces in the city’s new parking garage’ for women only‘. Those parking spots have easy access and well-lit exits. The more “difficult” parking spaces will be for the men. Those are the ones that require parking at an angle with tight clearances to concrete supports.
Strobel says the reaction has been mostly positive — with women and men both vowing to test their skills in the just-for-men parking spaces.
Do you think this is a pretty cool idea, and would be nice to have specially designed, bigger and easier to park spots in all parking lots or not? I know a certain guy who works 3-7pm at WYCD who could use a ‘special parking spot’ so maybe he could park his big truck straight, and not encroach into spot next to his….Chuck Edwards!
This begs the question: who is the better driver in your relationship and why?
