    I personally have no problems with people using them for a pram or trolley because I think they are intended for people with prams, not parents with kids, as they are generally wider. In my opinion, if you are going to let your toddler walk or carry a child around a shopping centre you do not need a car park close to the door.

    Shopping centres near me don't have PWP spots, so it's a non-issue

    *I can haz typos*

There are always tens of disabled spots free (we must have over a hundred of these spots) yet the oldies like using the 6 pwp spots instead. It drives me nuts. )
    I once would have thought the same but I now have a 74 year old father in very very poor health who isn't eligible for disabled parking but who can't walk very far. He is extremely ill having had radiation for a brain tumor and now serious kidney disease. I wouldn't begrudge him or others in similiar positions of poor health a few minutes in the pwp parking to shuffle into Medicare. I don't know if he has parked in pwp parking but I know that if he has, he would hate doing so.

    I have almost no hip movement and suffer constant pain especially on winter, i have very bad eye site, walk with a limp, have one leg shorter than the other, have asthma, have a reservoir in my head and a shunt in my back.

    I am not entitled to disability,

    Would you classify someone old with these problems as being worthy of the (not legally enforced) park?

    To look at i apear normal (except eye site)

    My first issue would be why aren't you entitled to a disability park??? Do u park in them anyway sounds like you have terrible health issues to deal with. I would be harrassing my doc for the paperwork!

    You don't have to be on disability from clink to have a tag

    If every designated disabled spot is unavailable then I have nonissue with a car displaying a disable sticker being in the pwp spots.

    At out local shops have seen cars displaying sticker park in pwp spots despite disabled spots empty right next to them ... Pwp spots closer to the chemist entrance ... The driver staying in the car and the passenger going inside ...

    into submission..
    drives me batty so i drive to the non judgemental normal spots.
    LOL - but trust me if you legitimately use the spot the psycho crazy woman won't be me! How much I get annoyed is usually directly related to how challenging it has been to get the kids into the car and how tired I am.
