    Out of curiosity though. Have u used the disabled toilets instead of non disabled? I would think that's worse bc there's usually only 1.

    Well that's not illegal...

    But yes, because that's usually where the baby change table is.

    Which to me means you/he will probably continue to do it?

    Default Hidden/invisible disabilities

    I said he shouldn't but his reasoning was that there were 3 available spots, we were there at a time when it wasn't busy, would only take 5min max and the likelihood of someone needing that were miniscule. If there were only 2 spots available he wouldn't have parked there.
    We did have a lady come up to him and say "did you know that's a disabled parking spot".
    Anyway I know he did the wrong thing but at the same time would seeing this really bother people?
    Yes it would bother me greatly in fact I detest it - my sister was disabled and my best friend is disabled, those spots aren't there for people to "duck in" and do their shopping. What happens when two other people arrive and suddenly there are none for the people that actually need them. They aren't there for able bodied convenience, they are there for people who have a disability and have the utmost need for them. It's not an able bodied person to decide traffic management and who and when they may be needed. I'd report you to the centre.

    Well all I can say is there are so many people at work who use the disabled toilet when the normal one is right next door.
    Anyway I thought the argument wasn't so much the legality but whether or not it is the right thing to do.

    The difference is with a zoo you woukd expect it to get busy with visitors etc and a trip to the zoo woukd not take 5min ducking in and out.

    It's not the right thing to do, at any time and in any scenario in any place.

    When I was younger I would have used it but we had a paralyzed friend in our early 20s and since then I know better. If there are other cubicles available and I don't have a child with me (so need to change a nappy or bring the pram in) then no, I don't use it.

    I am Absolutely beyond words.

    You have no idea when a group friends with stickers who are disabled want to shop or meet up at the shops.
    If my mum and sister want to meet up that's 2 spaces gone. Sometimes we met up with another 4 friends with disabled parking permits for coffee.
