thenodrog Posted September 27, 2007 Share Posted September 27, 2007 I welcome the news that Asda is to fine shoppers £60 for parking in the disabled spaces as the number of people parking on such spaces at supermarkets, retail outlets, sports centres etc appears to be increasing rapidly. I accept that living in such a 'multi-cultural' town as Blackburn that I probably have a disproportionate view on this issue and that such thoughtless and selfish parking may not be the case in most other English towns, but it does my head in to see fit and agile young people behaving with such ignorance and disregard for people in the community worse off than themselves. On the other side of the coin though such a move might make the berks who dreamt up the %age of spaces allocated to invalids and mothers and children (sexist?) think again. God only knows how they conducted their research but there are either way too many spaces on most car parks dedicated to invalids or way too few invalids in the country. The numbers are way wrong somewhere...... unless there are secret moves in the pipeline requiring all invalids to shop at once. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
