Can-Do-Ability: Answers and Solutions from my personal experiences of living with a disability

Relief from the Stress of Finding an Available Disabled Parking Space

14 Jan 2013A New Zealand company have created a device that lets authorities know that someone is illegally parked as they do not have a corresponding device in their car.

I think this is a fantastic idea as people should be held accountable for parking illegally, and be fined appropriately.

It is common for people without disabilities to ‘borrow’ disabled car parking spaces and that they will be there for just a few minutes, but it is often then that a person with a disability needs that space.

I know a family member who told me he parked in the disabled car parking space at his local shops because everyone else did it and it was cool – the truth is that there disability is in there head – shame!

This sounds like a great idea and given many city-based shopping centres now have electronic sensors to help people find vacant parking spaces, this addition should be a no-brainer. For other more remote areas it will be more of a challenge but not impossible.
