    Default Disabled Parking - Warning, swear word filter's gonna take a hammering

    I parked my big 4x4 V8 in the disabled parking bay at Tesco today and some do-gooder shouted "Oi, what's your disability then mate?!".

    I shouted "Tourettes you f**king w**ker, now p*ss off !!!".

    I agree with the principle of disabled spaces, just not the application. In my experience, the disabled people who actually need the extra space to get out of the car are getting into a , so there's no need to put them right by the shop entrance. I personally use and abuse them freely.

    Parent & child spaces on the other hand.....don't get me started.....

    My local shopping centre parking attendants have told me it is ok to use the one of 100 or so disabled spaces if the 10 child & parent spaces are full.

    At my local store the child & parent spaces are usually full of disabled drivers, even when there are plenty of disabled spaces free. They seem to think the blue badge enables them to do what the hell they like.

    Really winds me up!

    Firstly disabled spaces are close to the entrance to stores so disabled people don't have to walk far, as THEY ARE DISABLED! The width of them is for those disabled people that have to use s. Why do you think that users shouldn't be close to the entrance then?

    Secondly, have you got young children? Obviously not! Have you ever tried to get children through a busy car park with people reversing out of spaces. Most of the time if a child was directly behind a car the driver wouldn't be able to see it, so putting them with direct access to the path and away from other spaces will keep children away from danger. The width is for pushchairs etc.

    I welcome stores fining people for abusing these spaces, as long as common sense is used. (i.e. 2am with an empty car park; someone parks in a space that's either a disabled space or parent and toddler, to use the Cash Machine doesn't deserve a fine. But in peak shopping hours they deserve their car being dragged away).

    Doesn't the 'Para' in your username indicate Paramedic? Caring profession? My ar*e!

    I have used Parent and Child spaces in the past when i have taken my mum shopping!

    I am also probably part of the reason they renamed them Parent and Toddler!!
