Default Chinas First "Women's Only " Parking Lot

In this photo taken on Friday, Dec. 25, 2009, Chinese men look at a security personnel standing near an entrance of a parking lot, under construction, which is specially designed for female drivers only at a shopping mall in Shijiazhuang in north China's Hebei province. A shopping mall sets the parking lot, with each space 3 meter wide instead of the normal 2.3 meter, the first in China, to attract female shoppers.
A shopping centre in China has opened a car park that offers women drivers bigger-than-normal parking spaces to accommodate what it sees as their special needs.Wang Zheng, an official at the Wanxiang Tiancheng shopping centre in Hebei province's Shijiazhuang city, told AFP Monday the women-only parking lot aimed to address women's "strong sense of colour and different sense of distance."The spaces are one metre wider than normal parking spaces," Wang said, adding that the mall had "installed signs and security monitoring equipment that corresponded more to women's needs."
Driving in China is notoriously dangerous, with nearly 73,500 people killed in road accidents last year, or just over 200 fatalities per day, according to police statistics.

Are the chinese women are so poor in parking the car and due which they need 3 meter space, by average they might get a meter extra space than others.

I know how they ended with "women Parking",they might have been inspired from "Women's Rest Room".

Another apt song to be blared @ FULL VOLUME should be David Bowie's mega hit CHINA GIRL within this parking lot called "WOMEN PARKING".
