Fixed charged fines for parking illegally in all disabled parking spaces.

Fixed charged fines for parking illegally in all disabled parking spaces.

Substantially increase the fixed charge parking fine of €80 issued to drivers who illegally park in disabled-designated parking spaces without a valid permit and ensure that fixed charge fines apply to both public and private car parks.

Why is this important?

While the current €80 fixed charge fine ensures that some people don’t misuse disabled parking spaces, it’s clearly not enough of a deterrent. We need to root out this practice which causes real inconvenience for people who actually rely on disabled parking spots.


Reasons for signing

  • The abuse of disabled parking bays is bad enough but this mean low offence is usually accompanied by verbal abuse from offenders when asked to vacate the parking space. An on the spot fine of €250 and five penalty point is justified.
