Iread Carole Casan’s letter (issue 31, 2 August), saying she’s used a disabled toilet when there was a queue for the ladies, and also parks in a disabled parking bay. My 14-year-old son has cerebral palsy and is autistic. It’s hard enough finding suitable changing facilities for my son, who needs a changing bench and hoist and can’t use a standard toilet.
If everyone had Carole’s attitude, then these disabled toilets wouldn’t ever be available for those who need them. As for the parking bay, there’s a saying: ‘If you want my parking space, take my disability with it.’
Life’s already hard, please don’t make it worse with your ignorance. Terri Millward, Poole
