Dis­abil­ity car parks

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -


I wish to draw to ev­ery­one’s at­ten­tion the plight of per­sons legally per­mit­ted to park in spa­ces des­ig­nated for the dis­abled.

This last week­end [Oc­to­ber 27-28] I had oc­ca­sion to at­tempt to park in two such parks. One in the street out­side coun­cil of­fices, the other in Pak ’n Save car park.

With the first oc­ca­sion, I had to go to the po­lice to tell the per­son re­spon­si­ble for the ‘‘il­le­gally’’ parked ve­hi­cle to move it as they were tak­ing up the car park of a dis­abled per­son.

No ticket was is­sued as I was in­formed by po­lice the re­spon­si­bil­ity to po­lice such parks is that of coun­cil.
