When is the RTA going to crack disabled parking permits fraud
The number of expensive 4WD cars and expensive cars with permits parking around the city and shopping centre is ridicules and the number of times I’ve seen someone disabled or old and frail getting out of one of these cars is zero.
I’m all for supporting people with disabilities and think public car parks should have a compulsory number of FREE parks for people with legitimate needs.
This issue has nothing to do with legitimate people with special needs, its about lazy people who are fraudulently using these passes to get primo parking spots for free.
If you have a elderly parent/relative who you drive somewhere, it doesn't entitle you to park in disabled parks or use the permit when they are not using the car.
You are taking a space, someone with a legitimate reason to park there, you are being fraudulent for one having the permit without cause and are stealing money from local governments for not paying for parking.
I do concede that the outrageous cost of parking and the over inflated parking fines encourages people to cheap the system.
But I’m so over it..
This image was taken at Bondi Junction by me and maybe legitimate, but it makes a point.
