These spaces are essential for people with disabilities and immobility needs to allow them to enjoy safe and independent access to shops, churches and entertainment areas, etc. We ask drivers to obey current parking regulations and above all please think before you park

Accessible Parking Bays are usually provided in the ratio of 1:25 spaces and are located throughout each town. Accessible Parking Bays is usually coloured Blue with an accessible logo marking.

Sample of Accessibility Parking Permit

For many people with disabilities, access to accessible parking is an essential lifeline. Not only are accessible spaces situated in convenient location, close to shops, banks, etc but they are also larger than other parking spaces. When accessible parking spaces are not available motorists with disabilies may not be able to :

  •  Operate a passenger lift
  •  Open a door wide enough to transferring in and out of the vehicle     
  •  Get Access to Mobility Aid

Regretfully many abled bodies motorists park in these designated spaces and abuse of these spaces is an everyday occurance.

So next time you park, please consider the needs of the motorists who really need the accessible space
