I guess you have to distinguish the kind of "dedicated to", some are legal
parking restrictions, others are just asking for courtesy (=cannot be
enforced because it is not against the law to park there anyway, just not
polite or social).

for reference e.g.
https://taz.de/Frauenparkplaetze-vor-Gericht/!5565328/  a German court
deciding in a "famous" case that "only women" parking signs has to be
reworded and that the signs are just polite questions, not prescriptions
(would be discriminating against men and other non-women people).
