    Yep I think they can too. I have seen parking inspectors put fines of car windscreens re people that haven't displayed the permit and parked in the disabled bays.

    There are some at shopping centres that are wider bays but not all.

    Wider bays in general would be ideal but of course that wont happen because it would mean less parking bays altogether. god I hate parking at shopping centres and have careless people open the car door and bang into your car. Irks me. I tend to try and park away from other cars when I can since having my new car, even if I have to walk half a km.

    Theres a sign at my work. They tried to tow people but my boss was a solicitor and had words and they never came back. Most times i think its a scare tactic

I forget the actual law part and offence code though.

    I used to be a council ranger, we did overtime shifts with the parking patrol team. Worst. Job. Ever.

    Ok so am i understanding you correctly, if the car park is in the council control a fine can be issued but only by a council employee? Cos the SC staffer I spoke to was adamant there wasn't a damn thing he could do about that atrocious parking. It was a really hot day, I was 8m pg & pushing an 18mo in a pram so I was pretty cheesed off. He seemed like he felt really sorry for me so I think he would have done something if he could...

    ETA yes that job would have sucked, no one ever wants too be issued a fine eh? I'll bet you have some stories to tell from it!

    In regards to the op, the note was uncalled for. Of course they are spaces for parents of young children. And yes I would agree that runaway toddlers are at greater risk than babies in prams. I had a friend get blasted for using a PWP spot when she had a broken ankle. I actually think it was acceptable ffor her to use it, common sense and consideration.

    As an able bodied person, I don't get it! I park ages away from the centre so I can get my pram in and out, because no one is parked next to me! Great incidental exercise too. It cracks me up when people circle for a close spot, aren't you going to walk when you get inside?

    We have to do the same at our work. Clearly says staff parking only and we struggle to get us in as it is and we have patients still park there. So you have no choice but to park behind them. (paid parking everywhere on the streets, only 2 hour AND spots are already taken as we are near a big hospital with no parking)

If I lived in the city I think public transport would be my friend I hate driving.

    Mmm to be perfectly honest I usually need the parks close to the shops for the children under 5 that are walking and not in a pram...
