Campaign: Clampdown on abusers of disabled parking

2008-04-27 00:00

At an event to draw attention to the need for designated spaces for disabled drivers to be respected are (left to right) Cedric Hedgcock of the Quad-Para Association, Micheal Samuel of Traffic Policing Associates, Liberty Midlands Mall centre manager Sharon Swain, Bruce Grant-Oliver of Traffic Policing Associates and Frank Kruger and Johan Roode of the Quad-Para Association. Here, they watch as 40 white pigeons are released as a symbol of the joint venture to create awareness for the 2008 Disabled Campaign.

There is a no-tolerance policy at Liberty Midlands Mall when it comes to enforcing the law for the disabled facilities available on-site. The Quad-Para Association, Physically Challenged Association, Traffic Policing Associates and Liberty Midlands Mall have joined forces to provide a new policing service of all bays on site. Guards will now be positioned in the parking area to monitor all specialised bays, specifically the disabled bays. So be warned, there is no mercy for those who abuse these spaces. Vehicles will be clamped and customers will have to pay a R500 fine for vehicles to be released.
