Leave disability parking for those that qualify
Stella Heyer (77), who is living with disability after a number of back operations, requests that people with no disability respect those who really are disabled by not parking in designated disability parking areas. Last week Heyer had to wait for about half an hour for a person to remove his double-cab Isuzu bakkie from a disabled parking area outside the municipal engineering offices in York Street. The George Council issues temporary and permanent disabled parking permits. A disabled parking disc can be linked to more than one vehicle. Anyone who qualifies can make an application, but the form can only be completed by a medical doctor.
Heyer aks that the public leave the designated disability parking areas open for those who actually have a disability parking disc. "Please consider us when you stop in a disability parking area, as I really find it difficult to walk and need to be close to my destination," she pleads.
Stella Heyer says, “I have difficulty walking and need to be close to my destination”.
