Women worse at parking than men

 

You can now stop squabbling over whether women park cars better than men.

 

According to a German study, women are slower and less accurate than men at parking, confirming the suspicions of many male motorists out there.

 

According to the study, female drivers take an average of 20 seconds longer than male drivers to park their cars. Even so, their cars are more likely to be crooked than not, Telegraph reported.

 

65 people were asked to park an Audi A6 family saloon in a standard parking lot.

 

Drivers' manoeuvres, including head-on, reverse and paralle parking, were timed and rated for accuracy according to how far they kept the vehicle from the edges of the bay.

 

Researchers had expected the women volunteers to be slower in parking, Telegraph reported.

 

But they were surprised that the "cautious approach" did not produce a tidier result.

 

Dr Claudi Wolf from Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany, who led the study, said that the research confirmed previous findings that men have better spatial awareness and coordination than women.

 

Men also take more risks behind the wheel, she added.

 

She said: "These prejudices exist and as a scientist I decided the find out if they are true or based on myth," she told the Mail.

 

"I don't think that feminism or the cause of women is in any way set back by these findings," the researcher qualified.

 

"It only proves what previous studies about the spatial differences between men and women have shown."

 

"Besides, it is not as if there was a massive failing by women. It is just about parking - not the triumph of men over women."

Just to balance out the "Women are better drivers" article [:)]

 

I have 2 such neighbours in my MSCP.

One takes about 1 minute to park - forward-backward about 5 times each and still cannot get it right.

Another parks a Getz on the line because there is a pillar on the other side - and is happy with the position.

Such studies really is pointless and bo liao.

 

It will only cause ladies to try to make a point and create more problems.
