    I believe Mr. Hunt wrote this to stir up trouble....if not...I can only say it is not an advantage to be disabled...Those who are would love not to have to use these spots and be able to walk the length of the parking lot..or walk at all....Hopefully, you will never be made an "honest" man parking there....then and only then you will feel the pain..

    education is the key,educate the public,the enforcement "officers"and lastly but not the least the medical personnel. i agree with pictures on the permit. for enforcement the "officers" have to get out of their warm, city provided vehicles in inclimate weather. i am positive if the "officers" would spend any time parked,legally of course,at any box store or mall they would witness countless infractions. i could go on for quite a while, but i feel my main point has been made..

    Mr. Badcock is right. Vehicle permits should be on the licence plate and other ones should have a picture. Stores and malls also need more frequent policing.

    This is great news for the local "ticket collecting" afficionados....another kind of infraction to start collecting, possibly tens of thousands of dollars worth! Collect 'em, trade 'em, put 'em on eBay! But get out there quick...those parking spots are now gonna go like hot cakes! Heck, bring a few beers with you, and try for the 'daily double'!

    If the objective here is to make sure these designated parking spaces are used by ONLY those needing such spaces then education is the key. May I suggest that the ticket also include a full day of education at the culprits expense; may I go further and suggest the Hub put on this education to its benefit. And the price of the ticket must reflect the cost of this education.

    Years a go down this way there was a buddy what could make the permits on he's computer. Everybody I knew had one. I dont see nothing wrong with it. Most times the blue spots are empty and im usually in and out in a few minutes. If you want to use a handycap parking spot and you dont have a permit you are better off doing it only when its raining or the weather is bad. Willie Hunt Pouch Cove NL

      WILLIE HUNT, your ignorance is apalling, they are vacant waiting for someone to use them, not for lazy people who see nothing wrong with it if it's vacant. Maybe while you are parked there someone comes by who needs it. My wife is handicapped and has a permit, and so often the spaces are used by people like you with no permit who see nothing wrong with it. I hope you end u[p with sevral tickets, and get one every time you use it, maybe then you will wkae up. Man you must be just so lazy.
