Hate parallel parking, girls? Head to Triberg, Germany!

In the German Black Forest city of Triberg, there are now easy parking spaces for females. Because that's exactly what those drivers who are inferior to men want, claims Mayor Gallus Strobel. Have you been looking to sell or buy a used or new Ford van?

Reason behind move

Due to more room, better lighting, no concrete pillars nearby and the ability to get in the spot from reverse or going forward, female parking spaces will make parking much easier on women. “Men are better at parking than women,” according to Triberg mayor Gallus Strobel, which is why he imagined it was essential.

"In the new car park, we found that two places were not rectangular, at an angle to the road and placed between walls and pillars; that makes parking difficult, so we decided to allocate them to men," said Strobel to German magazine Der Spiegel.

Strobel claims he is not sexism since the ratio of female to male parking spaces is 5 to 1, and women can park in the male parking spots if they want to. Strobel also makes it clear that some women are great drivers.

Good for the city

It is unknown if Strobel was joking or not, but he has gotten mostly positive feedback, even though there have been a few people upset over it not being politically correct. About 5,000 people live in Triberg, and the small town might get a little bit of publicity because of the move.

It is evidently really good for the city that Strobel will put in the spots. There was one female critic who has given negative feedback about the parking spots for women, but there was one man who said he wanted to try out the parking spots for women and said he would come to Triberg just to try them out.

"I never expected this reaction," he said. "I've been on the phone all day, the TV will come. I am happy, and it looks like we've hit a raw nerve in society. It's been a great marketing gimmick. Women can come here and prove me wrong, and while they're at it they can see the town's attractions.”

More or less a true story. There are also apparently car parks in China that have 'women only' designated spaces. A bunch of people were also throwing around statistics that indicate one gender appears to be better at parking than the other, but none of them appear to be very rigorous studies.

Still spam though, just using a real story to try to get through filters.

The Bizzaro World, also known as Htrae (Earth in reverse) is a square planet that is populated by twisted types of Superman and his other DC universe friends. Some indicators of financial health sound like they would make a good deal more sense on Htrae. Here is a survey of some. Get a payday loan to get by while the economy recovers. It is very hard to spend a lot of money right now especially if you don't have enough savings. If you need to pay your other bills as well, you should try availing a payday loan right away.
