    Default Parents with Prams car parking spots

    Okay......so I have three kids, one being 7.5mo old. Often we will go to the shops with teh pusher for bubs and I will happily use the 'parents with prams' car spots.

    But!

    When I use the trollies and dont use the pusher I feel like I cant use the 'parents with prams' spots.

    I know this sounds like a really dumb question and I now feel a bit silly asking but can you still use the spots if you arent using a pram and just have your kids in tow or use a trolly?

    I do - they are usually a but wider to get them in & out of their car seats.

    Yep!
    We always park there, even if we aren't using the pram.

    It peeves me off when people with school aged kids and no baby in sight, use them!

    I do.
    But certain shops near here they're the same size as a normal park - kinda pointless tbh. Lol

    I use them. In fact I would prefer to use them when I don't have a pram. Our parents with pram spots aren't any bigger.. they are just closer to the doors usually.

    Yes you can. It really bugs me when people who don't have any kids use them!

    I still use them when not using a pram (grocery shopping and using a trolley). I always thought that the spaces were bigger to help with getting children in and out of cars and that they were closer to shops entries to prevent children having to walk etc through large car parks (reduce the risks of accidents).

    What annoys me is seeing parents park in them when they don't have any kids with them but because there's a car seat they think they can get away with it. I've approached parents who I've seen do this and there response is always "I'll only be 5 mins, just have to get milk", only to see them doing a large shop in the supermarket. So frustrating!!! Sorry vent over now.

    I don't use them at the shopping centre I go to because my car is to big and there is no room to back in and out

    Being that they're not a legal park you can use it whenever you like.
