My local council are now charging disabled people to park and whats more you can only park with a disabled badge for two hours even if you do pay for longer.
It takes me an hour to do 300yard round trip walking with my walking frame. How am i meant to get around town in 2 hours?! It is so unfair. Disabled people are vunerable people and i thought we were told vunerable people where going to be protected?! Apparently not!
I am very very cross at getting a parking fine because i stayed longer than 2 hours which is all a disabled person is allowed despite paying for all day parking. I do not see how it is fair and the parking attendant told me to get a bus. I would like to know how he thinks i can get a walking frame on and off a bus and then around town and back home again without requiring an ambulance. I am not quite sure who i am more cross at the parking attendant or the council?! I think it is a disgrace that a normal person can pay to park all day and be allowed to park all day yet i park in same place and pay to park all day and because my disabled badge is also showing i get a fine for staying longer than 2 hours despite my meter ticket also being on show - saying i have paid for all day. Excuse me where is the logic in this?!
I do not mind paying to park if i really have to but i do not think it is fair when it takes me so much longer than any other normal person. It pretty much takes me an hour per shop. I cannot help having breathing problems. I cannot help having weak muscles. I cannot help my ill health. I try to do the best i can with what i have and be thankful and yet people like to rub it in!
Life is so unfair! I try to remain cheerful yet it is so very very difficult and people do not make it easy.
