(Scroll down for video) New extra large parking spaces were built in South Korea, to be used exclusively by women.
Officials in Seoul, have introduced the larger parking spaces for lady drivers this week.
The new parking spaces are marked with pink paint and a mini skirt to indicate that the spaces should be occupied by female drivers. This is part of a $95 million initiative to make the city friendly to women.
These women friendly parking spaces are closer to the entrances and elevators just as handicap parking spaces. That’s not all, the city also installed stiletto friendly floors around those parking spaces so that the women won’t slip.
The female parking spaces are longer and wider. They measure 8 feet instead of the standard 7 feet.
It is still unclear if men who park in those areas, will incur a fine. As part of the effort to make the city more women friendly, about 7,000 new toilets for women will also be installed.
