    I think the note was uncalled for. But I do see many, many people who unnecessarily park in PWP spots and it ticks me off (think middle aged people on their own).

    I haven't used one of those spots for a long time, even though I have a 3yo and think I should still be 'allowed' to. 1) he is still in a car seat, requiring me to buckle him in. And 2) he walks everywhere now and car parks aren't the safest place for small people.

    Pretty petty note, but people are definitely petty about those spots!! I went Christmas shopping with my then 6 month DS and DH and a little while before we left DS lost the plot so DH was carrying him and we'd put stuff that we bought in the pram. When we were walking out to the car I was a couple of meters in front of my boys and I passed these two middle aged ladies. DH was prob juuuust behind them with bub and they started carrying on about how rude I was for taking the pram in with no baby just so I could have one of those spots. They shut their stupid mouths pretty quick when DH asked them exactly what they would call our DS!! Dumb *****es!

    I think people parking in disabled spots when they aren't disabled is bad form though, especially when there usually isn't very many of them.

    Until bubhub I didn't even know they were a point of conversation.

    Shopping in Perth seems to be a dream compared to the rest of the country. We have more disabled parking at our local shops than I've ever seen as well as heaps of pwp parking. And no agro and no note writing. Heaven.

    I think that note was probably left by a mum who was having one of those days..could nt find a spot, saw this person who had a child older than hers go into it and had a wobble. Our local shops have the pwp signs but on them they also say cars without child restrains will be find x about of dollars..so to me that means if your child is still in a car seat you have every right to park there. I do it if its the only spot I can find and my son is almost three..but I won't park in one if I know ill be coming back to the car without him (if going home with grandma instead) as I'm scared of ppl thinking I've parked there without a child. Also, I think once they go to school you probably shouldn't be parking there

    Karrinyup shopping centre. I'm assuming it's "loads" (your word not mine i said it was more than i'd seen before) because every time I shop there (which is several times a week) they are mostly empty.

    Didn't know you were in perth. Check it out.

    Although must admit the centre I go to doesn't have many PWP spots and are always taken so I never really have used one so I'm not that fussed really. Wouldn't annoy me if I saw someone without a pram in one. Disabled spots though I would be furious if I saw someone clearly not disabled using one (I know that is tricky cause of presthetics and that)
    Hehe, your mum makes me laugh!

    Too true though, they survived without them. Having one or two pram parks are not going to cover the hundreds of mothers etc coming to the shopping centre to shop. Scrap them I say or make them into disabled parking.

    Well at our shops pwp parking is usually full but there are lots of them (by that I mean at least 3 in each parking area). I couldn't believe whitfords has an entire parking area devoted to pwp and disabled parking which is in the shade.
