Because men are better at maneuvering into small, tight spaces, Gallus Strobel, mayor of Triberg (a small town in the Black Forest) has designated some of the more difficult to get into parking bays in the town’s municipal car parks specially for them. While the bays designed for woman are wider than average, those allocated specifically for men are narrower and with inconveniently located concrete pillars making the approach more difficult

The mayor’s move has courted controversy, seemingly a blatant case of sexual stereotyping and a denial of equal opportunities for both sexes.
While it may be true that some women find parking difficult, not all men are adept at it and as this young woman demonstrates, some females are very good at parking in small spaces – see http://www.gifbin.com/984129
