Re: first poster: There is actually a car called the primerA (note different spelling), a Nissan. But I don`t think the car in the video is one of them.

I`m surprised it hasn`t turned into a racial debate on driving yet. :-/

Why is it that people miss the obvious?
Sure you can get into a tight parking space with wheels that turn like the moon rover etc BUT the vehicles on either side of you CANT GET OUT! When they come out to their cars they would feel perfectly justified in damaging your vehicle trying to get out. When you would come back to your car the most you could hope for are some very pissed off motorists who have had to wait for your sorry ass to return. At worse they would damage your car trying to get out AND whup your ass for being so inconsiderate. Also the police would fine you for parking too close to other parked cars. Unless every vehicle parked either side of you has this feature this item is USELESS

Even if it was practical and useful, which it isn`t, it would only be a stopgap. Self-parking cars can be made already. You just stop near a spot and engage parking mode - the car`s computer then takes over and parallel parks for you.

If you can`t park, you shouldn`t be allowed to drive -.- ergh. and to all those female drivers posts, if males are such better drivers, why is their insurance so much higher?

benjbenj...more accurate than what? The only difference between that information and my post is a conformation that insurance companies say they do check the actual figures. They also state, unsurprisingly, that the difference applies to young drivers and that the differences are reducing anyway as more women are driving more miles and more women are driving more recklessly (which, unlike the person in the article, I don`t think is a result of picking bad habits up from men, as if women couldn`t have any of their own).

"all women drivers should have that installed on their cars!"

I know many a man that drive worse than their spouse.

Parallel parking? Nah, here`s how to do it properly:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=REpXf0cmJ...

The main reason women can get cheaper car insurance is simply business - it attracts more customers than it repels.

The old explanation, which might or might not still be true, if it ever was, is an inaccurate application of averages, based on what matters to the insurance companies - cost of claims per year. The old explanation is that (i) the average distance driven per year by women is much lower than that driven per year by men, so women have fewer crashes per year despite having more crashes per mile and/or (ii) the average cost per crash is higher for men than for women.

I don`t know if anyone even bothers checking the actual figures. It`s business - giving preferential treatment to women is seen as an attractive thing nowadays.

Or you can save $200 and just learn how to parallel park.

1) It`s not required for everyone to attend a driving school. I did not, and therefore I never learned how to parallel park.

2) I`ve never even had to attempt a parallel park, so it`s not really THAT important.

3) You are correct however in that we should all do something because it`s what you believe.

I like how the people making fun of women drivers either can`t drive yet, or have only been doing it for a very short time.

a) this device is apparently installed in the trunk of the car, meaning that you would have to sacrifice your trunk space to use it (at least until miniaturisation)

b) if they didn`t teach you to parallel park in driving school, the driving school should be shut down

c) parallel parking is extremely easy...learn how to do it

d) if you are unable or unwilling to learn how to parallel park, you shouldn`t be driving

geez just learn how to drive okay? Parallel parking isn`t that hard.

Insurance is cheaper for women possibly because they don`t get the adrenaline urges of driving fast like some guy. lets /discussion on that yes? kthanksbye.

Sigh. This only means that instead of perfectly parking it into a line of cars, you must pefectly park it DIAGONALLY facing a line of cars. What if it`s a little bit off? It will hit the other car.

"it should be required by law that all women drivers should have that installed on their cars!"--DCH4Life. hmmm, lemme guess, the DCH stands for DOUCH. you DO know that car insurance is cheaper for women because they get into fewer accidents than men..?

I guess I really don`t have to parallel park often in this area, there`s only a few times, and usually, it`s easy enough to find another spot.

For people who can do it, but it takes forever, this wouldn`t be horrible, it`d save a lot of time. And for people who can`t, at all... uh, go have someone teach you.

Sweet! *wonders if that would be allowed on a driving test*

And I should`ve suspected that "women driver" comment. Seriously, women are just as good at driving as men.

At least it didn`t get deleted! And I`ve never done it before so I just wanted to see if anyone would catch on. Good job though, knowing another language and all.

Parallel parking is easy, if you can`t do it you shouldn`t drive, therefore this product is dumb.
