China - Shopping Centre Builds 'Car Park For Women'

I just found this.. My comments in blue

Quote:
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. (closely followed by )

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". ( huh?????)

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.

wow the Chinese really are supporting the stereotype that Asians and women can't drive. How about a little more driver training instead of bigger spots. 200 deaths a day, I guess that isn't really surprising considering there's 3 billion people there and most live along the eastern coast. a country full of people who can't drive (that's a joke) plus a shitload who ride a bicycle as their main transportation is gonna add up to a lot of people being run over.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

There are sexually dimorphic differences in both color and depth perception. Get over it. If the Chinese women don't like it they don't have to park there.

I'm perfectly happy with my perception of size.. It's men who always think things are bigger than they are
