Is this for real? Paying for disability parking at Canberra Airport

Ggreg 28 April 2011 61

From the Canberra Airport website:


A number of designated disabled car park spaces are conveniently located in the airport car parks. To access these parking spaces, enter the car park via the boom-gate and take a ticket from the machine as you would normally.

Upon leaving the terminal you will need to pay for parking at the pay machines before returning to your vehicle. Our pay machines have been specifically designed to enable people in wheelchairs to access them with ease. If you experience any difficulties with the ticket or pay machines, press the help button and a member of staff will come to your assistance.

When was the last time you tried to pick someone up kerbside in Sydney?You havent been able to do it there for years.
I asked the question why you cant do pick up anymore and was told it is because its a security matter.that makes it end of story.

Agreed that it’s a security matter. It relates to the security of their parking income! 🙂

Oh come on, stop with the sarcasm. Don’t you realise if the disabled park for free or people just willy nilly pick up weary travellers from the departure area then you are letting the terrorists win.
