Petition News

Thank you to everyone who signed our petition. Sadly we ran out of time and fell short of the 10,000 needed for a response from the government.
HOWEVER, we are not deterred and have launched a new petition which is live now!

We really need you to work with us and champion this, so please share it with all your friends and followers on social media, working together let’s get this going viral. Tell people why it is important to you, why these bays need protection, and why asking the local authorities or Police just doesn’t work. Explain to people WHY we need this law introduced.

As ever, thank you all for your continued support.

Chris, and the team.

This is why we not only need disabled parking bays protected, we also need car parks to be more thoughtfully designed.  Continue reading PLEASE sign and share our petition

Politics in a nutshell!

We don’t do politics in our official Facebook Group (or religion) but this amused us enough to want to share it with you.

If you haven’t joined the group, pop over now. We don’t just talk about disabled parking bays, we talk about anything that concerns disabled passengers and drivers. The group is a friendly haven on the internet where all members adhere to a Group Etiquette designed to encourage a healthy friendly atmosphere.

Edward Street 2

Recently we asked the members of our official Facebook group, what they felt needed to happen to those who parked in a parking bay reserved for disabled drivers/passengers. It encouraged an interesting debate, which we are keen to continue here.
