HAVING BEEN CALLED a ‘Miserable Old Git’ by a local trader who had their white transit van in a Dyke Road disabled bay (because I legally requested he move for me to use it) I have taken photos and note that ‘disabled’ means not a jot to a huge Co-op lorries, Post Office vans, scaffolding lorries, trader vans and other members of the public. If challenged, the invariable reply is, “I am only here for 2 minutes.” Is a disabled driver supposed to disappear whilst that driver completes his shopping or whatever? Unfortunately, we do need more cameras to cover these bays. The fines and points on illegally parked drivers’ licences are high but few get caught!
