Cockburn Gazette - - OPINION -

WHAT a good thing it would be to crack down on the mis­use of Acrod park­ing bays by able-bod­ied driv­ers.

Maybe the only peo­ple who care are those with loved ones, like my mother, with a gen­uine need for pri­or­ity park­ing.

I sup­pose there could be good rea­sons to see a tradies’ ute in such a bay out­side Bun­nings, or a car in a blue bay at a golf course for sev­eral hours.

Al­though, my imag­i­na­tion can­not stretch far enough to fig­ure how a tradie could get an Acrod per­mit.

As for a golf course, I hate to think that able-bod­ied golfers are us­ing some­body else’s per­mit when they should know bet­ter.

Worse still is the thought the driv­ers might do the same thing else­where.

Could all this be a man­i­fes­ta­tion of a self­ish so­ci­ety that has stopped car­ing about any­body else?

Sadly, I fear so.
