Inconsiderate use of disabled parking bays in North Berwick comes under fire

Waiting for Video...

An angry North Berwick resident has criticised thoughtless motorists who use disabled parking spaces when they don’t need to.

William Miller (82) said it has been “mayhem” since the loss of the local traffic wardens and drivers were parking “willy-nilly.”

He said his “hackles were raised” when he encountered problems on a recent shopping trip to the town centre with his wife Elizabeth (79), a retired nurse of 45 years service, who has a disability.

He was forced to park in a regular parking bay at the Glebe car park because many of the disabled spaces were occupied by non-blue badge holders.

Mr Miller explained: “As my wife needs the use of a power chair, the chevrons on the bay for the disabled are a necessity.”
