At my local supermarket it has about 30-40 disabled parking bays and about 20 parent and child. A minority of disabled people regularly park in the parent and child bays even though theirs always plenty of disabled bays free.

Us parent's are not allowed to park in disabled bays ( Rightly so ) and It really annoys me a minority of disabled people abuse the system like that.

If 99% of disabled bays are full I'd happily give my parent and child bay up, It's right that they should have priority if the disabled bays are full, But should show some courtesy towards others and try to use the disabled bays as provided so us parents can use the facilities.

Please understand I'm not having a dig at disabled people, Some of my family are disabled and many do use the facilities correctly.

most places near me allow p&c to park in disabled and vice versa.
What bugs me is the people without kids parking in them! They have no shame!

That seems odd! You would think that they would use the disabled bays.. usually these are closer to the store anyway (at least they are in Cornwall where I live!)

Parent & child spaces are abused anyway....why does someone with a 13 year old need to park there.....

They should be for babies & toddlers ONLY

maybe they have got the tip about parent and child spaces from peter kay?? i always joke about it with my 20 year old daughter!

'Most ' (from my observations) of these so called disabled people are obese fatties who slither from their cars with their disabled 'fat' badge displayed then take one of the electric carts cos their too fat to walk round the super market, but continue buying carp food and to stuff themselves further.

This is not a dig at genuine disabled people at all.

There's a sign up at our ASDA now, and it says the space are for parents with kids under the age of 12 or 13 !! Like you say, why the hell do kids of that age need to be close to the entrance? It does me head when I've got my two with me, and someone with no kids pulls into the p&c space before you - I've thought about stopping behind them and leaving my car there sometimes :-D

too true! :thumbsup:

what also annoys me is people who abuse both becuase its more convienient to nip to the cash machine.

What about 'disabled' people with their badge that have no problem? Sick of seeing my local supermarkets disabled bays being filled by people with no problems yet have disabled badges!

Ok if they are with them but why should someone who has a disabled family member park there, when the person with the disability isn't even with them?

I don't take my mums card with me when I go to the supermarket...why should they?

Yes they do, Sorry I didn't include that other people abuse them, Thanks for pointing out, I spoke to the car park security guy when a disabled driver parked in the bay at the side of me and he said although it's not really fair theirs nothing they can do. Disabled people can park anywhere they like its up to them if they want to be courteous.

sounds like a plan!!!

although i have had people ask me can i leave the disabled bay when i am out with my son. He looks fit and active(me too relatively-i dont slither yet!) and appearances can be deceptive as he has Noonan syndrome and very little awareness to traffic. If he walks a lot he gets pain.

Annoys me more the grandparents collecting kids at school use the disabled places and the disabled adult stays in car while hubby gets out for child! i got a mouthful the other week for squeezing my car in alongside her on the same bay(no other space and my son HAS a disabled badge) I didnt move it anyway-thought it was funny!!:w00t:

My mom is a "fat diasbled person" when just looking at her, but she suffers from osteo-arthritis- from playing so much sport when she was younger. She then had a motorbike accident and damaged her knee so couldn't play in sports anymore and went on anti-depressants= hence putting on loads of weight and also not being able to exercise. So please think before you judge people. Just because they are fat now, doesn't mean they've done less sport and exercise than you have. Also, I had this really really fat swimming teacher and she swims all day and she's about 25stone. She eats healthily and exercises every day swimming, but she's still fat.

I personally think that all spaces are far too small. Take an older person who isnt classed as disabled but struggles to get in and out of the car. In my experience there are never enough child spaces either and it is a real pain trying to get them in and out.

When we were on holiday once my sister spotted a child space but the car in front got to it first and she had no children. My sister had a go at her and she just stuck her head up and walked off.

My comment was in context with people abusing disabled car parking spaces, my comment saying this is not aimed at genuine disabled people which omits me from your statement, maybe you should have read the statement, digested it and then understood it before going off at a tangent.

well said :thumbsup: my friend had cancer but got" fat" because of the steroids he was on ...how shallow to make an instant judgement of a person because of their size.

the people who abuse these spaces more than others are fat middle age women with fake orange tan or makeup put on an inch thick in little convertable sports cars or fat blokes in 4x4 cars. i once saw a middle aged ****** (is this word allowed) in a Porsche with no tax park in a disabled space so he could buy a magazine so i reported him to dvla ha!

No you said about fat disabled people, which without knowing my mom you would assume she is just a fat person who can't walk far so claim they're disabled. When I told you the history of my mom you're saying that it's about people abusing the spaces.

What we do if someone is parking in my parents spot outside there flat, is stick sticky labels on there windows and right 'PRIVATE PARKNG'. We watch them come back and try and get the labels off - they generally can't, it's hilarious coz they know people are watching and they're embarrassed! Don't tend to park there again!:p

EDIT: Not that I'm suggesting people do this in Tesco carparks lol

I had cancer when I was 14 but was lucky with just radiotherapy. I only put on weight since I've been on anti-depressants. Is your friend ok now? I've had my 5 year all clear, but still have to go once a year for check ups. Also, since I've put on the weight, where I had to have a lumber puncture and bone marrow removed from my back, it's causing me a lot of pain. I've had an x-ray on my back but when they offered me to go in that big tube (can't remember if it's the CT scan or the MRI scan machine) I panicked as it's the big one and not the small one, so haven't been able to have my back checked out :cry:

It is a shame you asume because that they have a blue badge and need a scooter because they are fat. This is one of the reasons i don't go out much as i can feel people like you looking at me and asuming that is the case.

I have a condition where you can't see what is wrong with me and i am fat due to depression hormonal changes due to my condition and the fact i can't get out of bed most days.
When i do go out i have panic attacks about people like you judging me.

I'm so sorry that you have to suffer midjet x unfortunately he passed away 4 years ago now. He was in remission for a year then it came back in a very aggressive form. you need to be brave and go in the big tube hun

I think people forget being over weight can also be a symptoms not just a cause
#30
Its great reading all this but i reckon there will be loads of spaces available shortly - as no one will be able to afford to drive to the supermarket what with petrol prices, more tax etc! So those who can afford it should be able to park where they like!!!!

Secondly, i park quite a distance from the entrance to any shop.......somewhere where no other cars are. Two reasons, its more obvious if someone tries breaking in .............and also i got fed up of being doored by people who either cant park straight or who cant fit out of the ample door space!
#31
I really don't care if you want to interpret what I said in a fat issue, that's your call, I worded my statement correctly, with the context of abuse of disabled car parking spaces. I have stated that this was not pointed at GENIUNE disabled people regardless of shape or size and disability. I only stated that there are people of this size that do abuse these parking spaces whether you guys like it or not it happens and is a fact, period.

Offensive or not it happens. doh grow up guys.

I'm sorry but you can't only use half a quote midjet, he does say "in my observations" and "so called disabled people" and also refers to people who still buy rubbish food, he's obviously refering to those poeple who think its perfectly acceptable to milk the system and do not try to help themselves, as stereotypical as it does sound you do get those people and they can be concentrated in area's near where Alfonso lives, hence the "in my observation" I see plenty of people like that. Point being, you know no more about the kind of people he's observed than he knows about peoples actual disability.

i know alfonse is not having a dig at genuine disable people - he's having a dig at those who abuse the system - people who have the badge because their mother or grandmother is disabled, yet they use the badge to park wherever they want.

i personally think that all the disabled and parent & child bays should be moved to the far end of the car park, thus discouraging people from using them when they are not entitled to.

Well I suffer from the back pain but I'm ridiculously lucky, I had only stage 1 I think it was- the nicest of the bunch!! I had to go to the children's hospital and to see all those kids running around ill, there was this one girl and she was about 2 years old and she was born with cancerous growths in and around her mouth. She had to have loads of Chemo and Radiotherapy, her mother had left her and her dad was a busy business man and he used to run back and forth from his office close the hospital and his daughter at the hospital. Then the one time I went for a check up and she wasn't there and I never saw her since so I assume the worst had happened to her. It's a shame but it was best for her as she was always crying in pain. The sores which were cancerous were all weaping etc. She must have been in agony.

No you didn't word it correct as you don't know the fact about the persons disabillity. Have you personally gone up to the people and said "excuse me, are you just fat and milking the system, or do you genuinely have a condition that I cannot see". Just because those fat people may be buying junk food doesn't mean they aren't buying it for someone else. I buy loads of junk food but it's for my OH and he's so skinny. My mom's the same- her partner eats like a horse and is only 12 stone (he's 6' 2").

So yes, I will take offense to your statement because you do not know if they are genuinely ill or just fat without asking them.

But how do you know? you are just asuming because they are fat and you can't 'see' a disability.

I agree with what you have said but i don't like the way you are quick to judge
