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
    Just sayin' your local shops has no authority to fine anyone as its not actually illegal to park there as opposed to dosabled parks where its actually against the law to park there

    Pwp are purely a courtesy park

    Are you sure about that? If the carpark is their property, I'd say they're free to impose whatever rules they like.

    The only time in my entire life I have used them was when I was pregnant. I don't think I ever used them when I took the stroller.

    I never saw any wider ones in Canberra, but have definitely seen PWP parks wider in Sydney and Brisbane.

    I think the ones here in SA are wider and also closer to the shops so little children aren't needing to walk through the carpark.

    When I was a baby, and mum visited the shops, there wouldn't have been even half of the amount of cars in the carpark and nowhere near as many large/powerful cars. I think it's like comparing apples with oranges.

    I use these parks all the time and my son is seven years old can walk ,but is almost blind ,you wouldn't think so looking at him we can't get a acrod sticker to park in disabled parking because being almost blind isn't bad enough to be able to park in disabled parking and I won't risk my sons life haveing to park far away from entrance to shop so will park in a parents with pram park and god help any one who tells me off for doing so .
