The position of the disabled parking places in the town become more farcical as time goes by, The places outside Barclays Bank for example are just about a silly a place to put them as could be imagined, with the big lorries trying to get round the back of the shops to unload.
Then we have folk parking there, and unloading their gear for a day on the beach. Decorators wagons. Builders lorries. You name it!
Some time ago a law was passed that made the fraudulent use of disabled parking places liable to a new fine.
The law has been enacted, and is in operation in Scotland, soon to come in here., What is different about it? Nothing much really, except it is now a £1000.00 fine for fraud of a parking place.
It seems in Scotland now, no one pinches the disabled parking places.
