Shopping centre builds 'women's car park'

275x250.jpgA Chinese shopping centre has built a car park specially designed for women -- with pink walls and wider spaces.

The "Lady Parking" car park is filled spaces which are a metre (3ft) wider than conventional gaps and  has increased signs to help female drivers find their way out.

They have even employed specially trained parking attendants to guide women drivers into and out of, the extra-large spaces.

Bosses at the Wanxiang Tiancheng shopping centre in Shijiazhuang say the "Lady Parking" car park has been designed specifically with women in mind.

The move is aimed at making women more likely to go shopping on their own…  not that it is normally a problem.

Robbie Knievel, 47 has revealed he will try to jump over 16 double-decker buses to mark the 35th anniversary of his dad’s failed attempt.

In 1975 Evel tried to jump his Harley-Davidson XR-750 over a row of 13 of the buses in front of 90,000 people at Wembley Stadium.

But when his rear wheel clipped the last bus he summersaulted through the air and broke his pelvis - ending his career.

Now Robbie will try to recreate the jump in London during May 2010… well everything except the crash.
