Crackdown on illegal parking in disabled spaces

Esther Hayden

Enniscorthy gardai are cracking down on people illegally using wheelchair parking bays.

The new community engagement project is being spearheaded by Garda Katie Mundow who said that illegally using wheelchair bays creates a significant amount of inconvenience for those genuinely in need of them.

She said that gardai will be focusing on people using the wheelchair spaces without a permit, using a counterfeit permit and using someone else's permit while the person that the permit was issued for was not in the vehicle.

Garda Mundow said that the gardai are working in conjunction with the council to target the problem and it is hoped to freshen up the parking lines in a number of areas so that people are immediately aware that a parking bay is designated as a disabled bay.

If you see someone parking illegally in a disabled parking bay contact Enniscorthy Gardai on (053) 92 42580.
