Council Infringement issued to disabled driver
Sent to Liverpool City Council 3 minutes later
I noticed as I was walking along Moore Street, Liverpool that a Vehicle, NSW registration number CYQ56L with a clearly displayed Disability Parking permit displayed had been issued an infringement.
I can see that the only error of this driver was to park front to curb.
Without knowing the driver the sign post has four pieces of signage attached. While this is clear to Rangers or similar I have witnessed elderly look at such signs and wonder which piece applied to them. For those of non English speaking origins, it is much more confusing.
While some without insight will provide flaccid advice to them to request a waiver, 80-90% of the time this will not happen due to medical reasons, age, lack of understanding or other competing priorities.
In this case, I am requesting a waiver for this driver who has parked in a legal parking place and correctly displayed a mobility parking permit. They have just missed the minor element of not parking rear to curb.
I have made this report while sitting and observing this area and see no danger in this instance.
I believe the Ranger while acting lawfully, has acted heartlessly without any consideration of the disability or the traffic conditions.
As a police officer of 24 years, I would not issue an infringement in such circumstances.
