Has anybody else noticed the hugely disproportionate number of disabled parking bays in car parks these days?
Now I have nothing against the disabled and respect that they do require to park closer to the shop etc. And I do have use of my legs so I don't mind walking the extra distance, its just that when you can't get a space because all the normal spaces are taken. It just seems that stores allocate a higher proportion of the bays to the disabled, than the proportion of disabled people out there!
I went to a new Tesco in my home town and HALF, yes HALF the car park bays were disabled. And all the normal parking bays were full and all the disabled parking bays empty!!!!
I went to the Tesco I normally go to, and not being content that a quarter of the car park was allocated to disabled bays, they had also now painted over the majority of the parent and child bays leaving only THREE for the whole store!!! (and its a massive Tesco Extra as well!)
When you do see people park in the disabled bays, they always get out and walk away fine! And its worse knowing that it was found that the majority of disabled badge holders have actually no right to them!!!!
This seems to be the way in most car parks these days as well!
