I know I’ve already about this once, but I still find it absolutely irritating and annoying when people just totally ignore what these spaces are actually for!
We should start giving people fines if they park in a parent & chid parking space without having a child with them.
Obviously there should be some proper guidelines with this, like for example I think that between 8am and 6pm only parents/guardians/people with kids should be allowed to park in these spaces. I also think there should be an age limit on these spaces. Lets see, how does 0 to 7 sound! At 8 your kid should be old enough to not need any additional help to get out of the car? Over course kids with special needs would be the exception, but then if you have kids with special needs you should be able to park in the handicapped spaces as well! Same goes for kids without special needs. When all parent & child parking spaces are in use and you have a child with you, you ought be allowed to park in the disabled parking spaces!
A few days ago I went to a Sainsbury because they had a special offer on diet coke and I saw a ‘white van’ parked in a parent child parking space, upon closer inspection there actually was a child seat fitted on the passenger seat, which begs the question how does that work in the eyes of the law where it states that you’re not allowed to have your child in the front seats until a certain age!
The other day I went to tesco because they had a rather special offer on something and was following a Peugeot 206cc which then pulled into a lane of the car park which had no entry signs put up, and then she parked in a parent & child parking space without having a child seat, not a child in her car! That’s two things that annoyed me straight away!
Yesterday I went to the same tesco I was the other day and this car parked next to me:
When the driver got out it was a smartly dressed Middle Aged woman, not child seat, no child.
Herewith my rant ends!
