London: Statistics have proved that women are not good at parking cars as compared to men.
Researchers at the Ruhr University Bochum in Germany asked 65 volunteers to park a 23,000-pounds Audi, and found that women took up to 20 seconds longer than men.
According to statistics given by the Driving Standards Agency, out of the 170,000 women who failed their driving test last year for mistakes in reversing or failing to use their mirrors, 55,000 failed in parking, totalling to a third of women failing in parking.
While some women complain that their breasts make it difficult for them to turn around while parking, young men are found to have an overdrive of testosterone as soon as they get behind the wheel.
“So far this year the pass rate is 50.7 percent for men and 44.1 percent for women,” the Daily Mail quoted an agency spokesman as saying.
