In a way, it's refreshing that this City of Perth has taken the bold stance of stating that women are innately handicapped. The article mentioned that Germany, China, and Korea also have taken up the stance that women are crippled by nature, and cannot drive in addition.

In all seriousness, the only thing of any merit in that experiment or whatever is possibly either improved lighting or CCTV cameras.

Yes, it's very stupid. I fail to find a reason for women-only parking lots (?). Can someone enlighten me?

Muggings or assaults, probably.

I think statistically men have a higher chance of being mugged/assaulted in Australia. Don't quote me on it but yeah just increase security for all, plain and simple.

Obviously Perth has seen a recent jump in crime and this sounds like a stupid idea to "prevent" crime that is completely sexist.

http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/western-australia/was-crime-rate-surges-with-600-offences-committed-everyday-in-2015/news-story/8337d08a9d30dd7aeaa1578b8024cba5

if it's not about crime prevention, it is about the stereotype that women cannot park as well as men (although they are better drivers), which is also sexist, and I doubt Perth are stupid enough to do this.

I think that someone that will steal a car, doesn't care if a male or female drove it. In terms of assault against women, what about men of any age? In fact, statisticaly men are victims of assault more frequently than women, regardless of age group, and it's unfortunate Perth are not instead using this money to make entire parking lots safer, instead of rewarding themselves with holidays from leftover money for doing a "good" deed for women.

I guess I know where to steal my cars from now on. The other 672 car bays that have shitty CCTV and lighting. With these convenient markings that tell me what to avoid.

Great idea to make women feel safer.

I don't know what I expected coming to this thread.

Somehow I thought maybe expectant mother parking was going to be more of a thing.

Clearly I was too optimistic.
