Women Drivers

Driving my car around a busy supermarket Used Cars Exeter car market, I always search for the easiest car parking space to get in and out of. I don’t mind if I have to walk someway, even if it is raining, as long as I know that I won’t have trouble getting out of the space that I struggled to get into! Having my children onboard can sometimes assist. There are many car parks which offer spaces with extra room if the driver has little ones onboard. I am still not certain whether that is due to the fact that you can get them out easier or if car park planners are canny enough to know that as a parent you have enough trouble maintaining order in the car without worrying about car parking.

The female sex has always been the butt of jokes when it comes to parking and indeed reversing. And in a recent study statistics showed that women do take longer to reverse park then men and they are more likely to bump a nearby stationary car. So why exactly is this?

Some women claim that it is more to do with a women’s physicality. For example, her lack of height may cause visual problems. Indeed another claim suggests that women’s breasts get in the way and that breast size correlates to reverse parking ability! But whilst that might be an interesting claim ( and explain what my problem has been for all these years) there are other suggestions which state that women simply lack confidence in this department.Some women claim that it is more to do with a women’s physicality.

Whilst spatial awareness may be more of a challenge to women than men, a recent study stated that once women gained confidence they found it just as easy as men to reverse park their car. So come on women, best foot forward!
