    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.
    This scenario is what I was thinking.

    I think if you have a permit, and the disabled person is in the car, you can park there . No permit no park. But i also think the permit out to attach to the person, not the vehicle. If the person to whom the person to whom the permit applies is not in the car, then no parking in the disabled spot on that occasion. What do others think?

    We take the sticker out and transfer if the person with disabilities changes cars. If we don't have they the person with the disability aren't in car we don't use it. If we have forgot it we don't park there either.

    I also thought if there is a dr surgery/pathology/anything medical nearby usually there will be 1 or 2 people at least needing it within 5 mins.

    I don't think it's ok to park in the disabled spots. Ever.

    With disabled toilets I also do not use them unless I am with DS and need room for the pram and change him too (and there is no parent room).

    like I said we were only ducking in for 5min max.
    I know it's not the right thing to say but it's really no harm done.
    If it's not busy then there would be plenty of other spaces!

    The U.K. Rarely has parent rooms 😔. Change tables are always in the disabled cubicle.

    As someone said above, 'no permit, no park'. I really can't get my head around someone thinking its okay to use a disabled parking spot when they aren't entitled to it. My brother needs one. It isn't about being able to find a park when the centre is busy, its about physically not being able to walk far and every step causing him pain. He needs to park close to the shops or else he just can't go.

    Its so disrespectful, entitled, dismissive. I can't even...

    Park in the non disabled spots and be grateful that you can walk that extra 20m.

    That said - I would never approach someone and tell them off as I tend to assume anyone parking in the disabled spot is entitled to it and don't 'go looking' for a disability as I'm well aware that some are invisible. My brother, for instance, looks perfectly able bodied and he tries hard to hide how much pain he is in.
