I will say Jontu that I do admire your honesty in posting in this thread knowing that it would be unpopular. I really do try never to upset people, but this subject is close to my heart.
Quite a few times they are all full.
I think people who disabilities actually prefer the smaller shops. Less walking - less busy so for them it is easier than a larger centre.
So they may prefer these places even though 90% of the general public do not go there.
I'm old enough to remember the Seinfeld episode where George parked in a disabled spot and his car was destroyed by angry citizens.
So I don't ever.
And just to clarify it's just this particular shop that we happened to park there. Not other ones that are normally busier and have cars in the disabled spot.
It's not always about the distance to the shops and this is something that gets referenced a lot but it's not the biggest issue for those with wheelchairs. Cars that are designed for wheelchairs actually need the wider spaces to get the chairs out - either with ramps or a hydraulic hoist system - my sisters chair could go faster than I walked, distance wasn't an issue, we needed the space.
