Will it take legislation for Barbados to respect Handicapped Parking Spots? Belleville bookstore scene of latest incident!
That’s partially why I get annoyed when folks abuse these special places, they take up important space and when a person who really needs it, maybe not for a prescription but just to rush and use the toilet, has to park further away for their insensitivity! If you check the dead-tree edition of the Saturday Sun on a regular basis, then you’ll recall there was a picture of a Police van which abused one of those spots, and it earned the reader a prize for Amateur Photo of the Week! The editor promised to notify the Commissioner of the situation, wonder what happened? Follow up, Nation, follow up! NB – Photos used up to this point, are from 2007
I was at Chefette Rockley last month and watched a big ZM ease into a Handicapped Parking spot near the Main Entrance and I walked right up to the vehicle, watching the driver all the while, who at first played he was ignoring me then moved when he saw I was pulling out my camera – why does anyone have to resort to such measures to do the right thing? Just do the right thing every time, and no hassles!
So here I am on vacation, passing at the original Book Den in Belleville and what to my wondering eyes is a Honda in the handicapped spot! Again I say, if I am wrong? I am willing to amend or correct – but if you are guilty, then sin no more!
Apart from ITAL regulations which need to be approved by an independent body; a review of Budgetary measures as they stand in light of the Cost Of Living; there also needs to be relevant legislation created enforcing anti-littering/anti-dumping laws and the correct usage of Handicapped parking – just like how VAT & safety belts were successfully passed!
