    Stumbled across this article. Thoughts??


    http://www.driving.co.uk/news/news-c...ish-motorways/

    first para:

    Sheilas’ Wheels, the “female focused” car insurer, has proposed the implementation of ‘PinkZones’ to British motorways. Handily identifiable in the universally female-friendly shade of luminous pink, the lanes would only be for drivers blessed with two X chromosomes. The insurer also called for female-only fly-overs so women can assert not only their metaphorical but also literal hierarchy over male drivers.
