€120 car park fine is ludicrous

Sir -- I would like to express support for the OAP who was fined €120 for parking in a 'disabled' space in Dun Laoghaire (Sunday Independent, August 22). This lady had a valid parking permit but it was out of date.

Although far too many permits have been issued to older people who are well able to walk to a shop, it is ludicrous that people can be charged €120 by the council plus a threat of increasing this to €1,000 if the fine is not paid immediately. The council should cancel the fine and apologise to these people promptly and ensure it never happens again.

John Kelly,
