New legislation introduced and adopted into law In Minnesota recently has resulted in the creation of the worlds first Women’s Only Parking Lots
Due to the rapidly escalating crime rates in Minnesota and with the high and ever increasing number of attacks on women in secluded parking lots, especially during evening hours, the Minneapolis City Council has established a ‘Women Only’ parking lot at the Mall of America.
Even the parking lot attendants are exclusively female so that a comfortable and safe environment is created for female patrons.
Although some of the finer details concerning the new legislation need to be tweaked a bit and are still in the planning stages, Minneapolis authorities feel confident that the new legislation will serve it’s originally intended purpose.
Minneapolis city council spokesperson Penelope Hindsight says that the first order of business is clearly marking the parking area with fluorescent stripes to assist in keeping the new parking area organized and the influx of traffic flowing smoothly.
