I would be very interested to have views and experiences, please.
I have had asthma to some degree all through my life.
At times I am fortunate to be quite well, and though my energy and resilience has diminished somewhat in the past couple of years, I can usually drive to park in the local town and walk to the shops, etc, without too much difficulty.
However, there are times when I have no choice but to go into town and take the closest space to the Bank, or whatever destination I need. Often ticket machines are some distance away, and a few weeks ago, when it was also very hot, I just could not make it to the machine and back and then off again. After only 20 minutes, when I puffed back to the car, I had a penalty ticket for Â£20.
I wrote to the local Council but they didn't want to know.
I am thankful that I do not need a disability badge for the car, but I wonder what other people think about a registered notice for car use, on the occasions when breathing difficulties are acute.
Although I have a supportive family and friends, I do not have an immediate partner to drive me around, and think too, that it is important to keep independent.
I shall be very interested to hear from anyone interested enough to reply.
