When it comes to parking I really only have 1 gripe and that is with people that park in Disabled Spots when they are clearly not disabled. Before anyone comes back with “Just because they don’t look disabled doesn’t mean thier not” I agree but you see to qualify for an MPP (Mobility Parking Permit) you MUST meet one of the following criteria
So as you can see it is fairly easy to determine whether the 20something yr old you saw getting out of the car in a mini skirt and 6″ stiletto heels meets the criteria, in fact in NSW it is further qualified by the extra clause
I work in Civic and am daily subjected to a person form my building parking illegally every day in a Disabled spot. They use a NSW permit in the ACT and neither the NSW nor the ACT Guv have the authority ‘apparently’ nor the will ‘obviously’ to do something about it.
I don’t care if someone uses a Permit to get free parking so be it but to park in a disabled spot meaning that people in genuine need cannot is not only illegal but immoral as well.
This has been bought to the persons attention ‘no change’ other than an implied threat that I persist they will accuse me of bullying and because bullying is accepted as fact merely by percepion i cannot ‘ask’ that person not to do it. It has been reported to their boss, no care ‘outside of work’ a story printed in the weekly organisation news letter ‘no care’ reported to ACT Gov ‘no care’ NSW permit, reported to NSW Gov ‘no care’ offence in the ACT. Used to be people would do the right thing if asked but seems that those that believe they are ‘owed’ something by society in general don’t give a flying rat’s arse providing it doesn’t upset their personal feelings and F##k everybody else.
So what would you people do? Now try and be constructive ‘yes i know for some that is impossible’
