    Parking Spaces--MEN ONLY.

    At last commonsense has prevailed, some one has finally realised that men need to keep their cars safe from "parking errors" caused by women.


    German mayor defends 'men only' parking spaces

    A town in south-west Germany has drawn accusations of sexism after designating two particularly tricky parking spaces "men only".

    The mayor of the Black Forest town of Triberg says women would find it difficult to park there because drivers need to back in diagonally without hitting a pillar and a wall.

    Gallus Strobel noted that 12 places in the 220-capacity car park are reserved for women. Many German cities designate a small number of parking spaces, usually near exits, for women concerned about their personal safety in poorly-lit garages.

    Strobel said on Thursday that he had received overwhelmingly positive reactions from men who feel discriminated against by "women only" parking.

    But the Triberg mayor says some "humourless people" had criticised the move.

    Hey Gordon,
    Well I suppose it is ok to have a few "men only" parking spaces since they have 12 "women only" ones too. Now the video was hilarious. Did you see how angry she got at other vehicles and people on the sidewalk? Hope you are doing well.

    Too bad for the two cars she banged into..it's my experience women don't care about cars, they are a means from getting from A to B. And too bad for anything or anyone who gets in their way...Driving cars should be left to men..women can use shanks's pony...
