German men parking

German men parking, German town designates tricky parking spots for men only, Female drivers looking to park in one Triberg, Germany parking lot will have few options after the town's mayor acted to have the majority of the "tricky" spots reserved for men only. Mayor Gallus Strobel says he's had "much pleasure" in coming up with the men-only parking idea and that it was done somewhat as a joke. Regardless, it turns out that he's not the only one to come up with a gender-based parking scheme.

'Men Only' Parking Comes To German Town, A town in southwest 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 told The Associated Press 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 "humorless people" had criticized the move.
