Men Only parking spot

GERMANY - A German mayor is making headlines after declaring his town's trickiest parking spots to be marked 'men only'.

Gallus Strobel, mayor of Triberg, has ordered parking spaces to be painted with a male or female symbol depending on their perceived difficulty.

Women have been given wider, well-lit spaces that are close to exits of car parks.  Men are expected to park at more difficult angles close to cement pillars.

Mayor Strobel says the move is not intended to be sexist, but merely is a publicity stunt to attract tourists to the town.
