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

Bay abuse comes in all forms

It isn’t just ignorant people parking in disabled bays. Sadly many companies think it is okay to use this resource as a place to put products.

A moot subject

Do you recognise this scenario?

The one where you pull in to your local supermarket and discover all of the disabled bays are taken. So what do you do?

Do you turn the car around and return home? Do you drive to another store hoping that you can find a suitable parking space?  Continue reading A moot subject

Petition to government

Edward Street 2

For people with disabilities just getting in and out of a parked car or travelling the distance from the car to their destination can be very difficult, sometimes impossible. Unfortunately an able-bodied driver parking in spaces reserved for people with disabilities is a far too common sight. Continue reading Petition to government
