Women-only car park in China
Posted 12/30/09

A shopping centre in China's Hebei province has built a car park with wider spaces that it says is designed especially to suit women drivers.

The women-only car park in Shijiazhuang city is also painted in pink and light purple to appeal to female tastes.

Official Wang Zheng told AFP news agency the car park was meant to cater to women's "strong sense of colour and different sense of distance".

The parking bays are one metre (3ft) wider than normal spaces, he said.

The Wanxiang-Tiancheng shopping centre had also "installed signs and security monitoring equipment that corresponded more to women's needs", he said.

The Global Times website says female parking attendants have been trained to help guide women drivers into their parking spaces. The bays also have extra lighting.

Driving in China is a dangerous activity, with more than 200 deaths in road accidents each day last year, AFP reports, citing police statistics.

200 deaths each day? wow... But why car park? I don't think it is the cause for the car accidents. People normally have car accidents on the road, when driving too fast or being drunk

Lol. With an extra lol.
But hey, at least the government's concerned about its sovereign's death issues. When it comes to driving, that is.

Aw, that sounds sexist.

Not really sexist. It is good to have variation. And yes, usually men drive faster and dangerious while women slow and safe. But I still can't figure out why old ladies driving Nissan Micra's swear at me so much when I drive past them.

Haha, that's great. But why a parking lot?
Most accidents don't happen in parking lots, they're usually on roads and bridges...
At least they're doing something to fix the problem~

I said it sounded sexist, there's a difference.
My uncle drives way worse than my aunt dose. I always fear for my life when I drive with him.

A whole fucking meter wider?! Do women in Japan drive Hummers or something? Who could possibly need such a massive parking space?

Huh. I don't understand why there are so many women only insurance companies if women are such terrible drivers.

Heh. Also, are you sure this is legit? I mean someone will complain blah blah blah, someone will get sued blah blah and political correctness shall ensue.
