Women Only Parking Spots? South Korea Is Adding Them

Thinkstock

It goes without saying that there should specialty parking spots for the handicapped and maybe even expecting mothers. But what South Korea is doing takes it a step further with “Women Only” parking spaces.

It’s all apart of the countries $700 million initiative to make Seoul more ‘female friendly.’ The project will take place over the next four years and include resurfacing of sidewalks with a ‘squishy’ material to help women wearing high heels. They will also include over 7,000 new ‘women only’ toilets.

Let’s get back to the parking spots though.

Government officials are creating parking spaces that are wider than normal and closer to buildings, elevators, etc. They will be painted pink with a symbol of a woman wearing a short skirt.

No word on how many of these spaces will be installed throughout the city or if men will face fines if they park in said spaces.
