SINCE 2002, at least 2073 people have been using disabled parking identification.
President of the Barbados Council for the Disabled (BCD) Maria Holder-Small said the charity has been distributing more of the IDs to people who have developed some form of a disability over time and needed to park in the specially designated spots.
She was speaking yesterday at Brownes Beach, St Michael, where members of the disabled community met to discuss a petition that was delivered to Prime Minister Freundel Stuart seeking amendments to the Road Traffic Act. One of the proposed amendments is to make it illegal to park in areas specially assigned for the disabled.
Operations manager at the council Rosanna Tudor said the council was the only organisation that could issue the identification to individuals and only after they produced a doctor’s note. (TG)
