These photos were doing the rounds on the Internet yesterday. I never post about politics but this really annoyed me. What gives these drivers the right to park where they like? Why take some of the very few disabled parking spaces that are around the place? To add insult to injury there are other parking spaces available that could and should have been used.
I also don’t understand the fact that a member of the public who parked in a disabled bay recently got banned from driving for 6 months and fined €500. Will the same be done with these drivers? Does being a politician make you exempt from the law?
Above was the response from Senator Lorraine Higgins. No apology just a lame excuse in my opinion. It doesn’t matter what time of the day it happened disabled spaces are for people with a disability who those who have a passenger with a disability.
Anyway rant over. I really hope these people will re-think where they park. There are no excuses.
