Disabled Parking Bay

I have a disabled parking bay out side my house. Every now and again people with out blue badges use it.

Today someone has left their car in my bay, and its still there.

Any suggestions for rude notes i can leave on the wind screen????

You have taken my parking space, do you want my disability too?

How about 'Disabilities can't be helped. Rudeness can.' Loved anonymous's above.

Well said anonymous, really admire you Casdok, 18 year olds are hard work !

In France every disabled space has a big notice which says 'If you take my parking space, take also my disability'.
Maybe you could have one made?

It is sooo annoying! Espcially in shopping centres. They bays are their for a reason, but people just dont reson do they!

Grrrrrrr! Some people are just so selfish, aren't they. I'd be tempted to lie in wait until said driver comes back. Either that, or buy a wheel clamp.

I like the phrase take my space, take my disability but I'd add something like ' assuming an ignorant **** like you can read'
Totally selfish and callous.

Can you tell me, does a disabled badge allow you to park at bus stops?

I once came across an old lady whose son or grandson parked at a bus stop near her house. She said this was okay because she had a disabled badge. Is that right?

Casdok said...

No!! I looked it up just to make sure;

Disabled Person's Badge holders MAY NOT;

park where a loading ban is in force
park at special bays e.g. doctor, police, diplomatic, sometimes resident
park on footways unless there is an exemption indicated by signs and white lines
park on clearways
park on bus stops
park on taxi ranks
park on pedestrian crossing or its extended markings

Leave a polite note. If it happens again, leave a mean note. A third time, slash their tires.

I'm one of those people who can't think of anything to say until 10 minutes too late. I think the first comment made by anon on this page is probably one very apt. No one wants a disability.

Disability is looked upon in such a negative way, we need to highlight the positive, so why not say i need this parking space more than you do, please move, failing that i agree with slash the tyres!!

WesterWitch/Headmistress said...

Grief that would make me mad. I do think the first comment is very apt.

Or . . . Our disability is a birthright - please explain your right to stupidity.

Failing that - poke 'em in the eye . . .

Casdok said...

I like that one!!!

Inthemud said...

I was going to say the same as Anon, my friend carries notes around with this typed on it and put's it on any offending car she comes across!

Very annoying, did you see who it was when they came back for car?? Strategically placed nail in road might stop them in future!!Opps, shouldn't have said that should I!!

Casdok said...

No worries...our little secret. I wont tell anyone!!

Helen said...

Couldn't you just have called the police and have the car removed?
That might have been the easiest (and the most effective) way and much more fun than just a note :-)

One time my family and I went to a flea market. We parked too close to one of the tents. Later we found a note that said, "Please do not park so close, or next time I will have to open your car with a can opener"

Funniest thing ever!

I'm with Justin....I'd leave a very polite note explaining why you need your space and how sad you are that this person has made your life that much harder. I think a rude note would make people stick a finger up, but something explaining the issue would make them think and hopefully think twice before doing it again. you should not, of course, need to do it. People are SO selfish.

I don't suppose you have a dog? ;) He he he

I would have put tacks in front of their tyres, stuff a note! But then, I'm nasty!

how about "do let me know if you would like to borrow a pump- someone seems to have let down all your tyres and most of us only have the one spare!"
