German town designates tricky parking 'men only'Jul-13-2012
A town in southwest Germany has drawn accusations of sexism after designating two particularly tricky parking spaces "men only."

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.
