Dis­abled park­ing mis­use

Campbeltown Courier - - YOUR VIEWS -

Sir, There is an on-go­ing is­sue with dis­abled park­ing in Main Street. On many oc­ca­sions my fa­ther-in-law has been forced to park in side streets be­cause the dis­abled bays are taken up by able bod­ies. The break­ing point was when a 76-year-old great-grand­fa­ther fell and hurt him­self be­cause the bays were taken so able folk can get a roll and sausage. Peo­ple think they are dis­abled but they had no badge on dis­play and it was all to get two me­tres closer to the shop. It has got so bad that my fa­ther has spent sav­ings he had for his funeral to buy a mo­bil­ity scooter. I love the town and it is sad to see that due to bud­get cuts there is no en­force­ment. Name and ad­dress sup­plied.
