SIR - I am a registered disabled driver who has some difficulty in getting about. Last week I went back to my car in a Stevenage car park to find a white transit van parked so close to my driver's side that I was unable to get into my car. I would not have been able to get down the side of my car, the van was so close.
I tried ringing the company which owned the van only to get an answering machine, in desperation I had to get someone to climb into my car and get it out of the space for me.
May I request through your paper that people be more aware when they park close to other cars, and also that people without blue badges do not take up spaces reserved for those who are entitled to them.
There is a growing trend of non-disabled drivers using disabled bays in supermarkets and such like with no fear of any penalty at all. No-one seems to care any more, we are turning into a very selfish nation with no respect for the needs of others.
