Sir: On 29 July you printed an item about women's difficulties with parking and manoeuvring a car.

Having driven my own car for 30 years I am certain the reason is the design of cars to fit men. Women, about six inches shorter, have to make do, balancing on foam cushions and still unable to see the four corners of the car. Lately someone invented for the Golf a seat with a hand-operated raiser. This is an immense improvement. If this can be extended to all cars I am sure women would manoeuvre as well as men. There is nothing so helpful as to be able to see what you are doing.
