Car park should be disabled only

Northwich Guardian: Car park should be disabled only Car park should be disabled only

IN RESPONSE to disabled parking provision in Northwich.

It would be great if people were considerate enough not to queue in the entrance to the car park by the Seafarer therefore stopping disabled drivers from going round the car park to the disabled parking spaces. Maybe it would be a good idea to make the whole car park disabled only!

The mess the highways department have made in church minshul needs to to returned to the way it was previously, Somebody is going get killed with the present set up, I've been run into the hedgerows twice and had to slam my brakes on due to drivers not giving way at the new obstacles set up by highways department , also when drivers are exiting the Crewe road to enter the roundabout are unable to see vehicles entering the roundabout from Winsford due the garden on the corner I've almost collided with cars having to pull out and almost hit myself, The chaos and hold ups the new obstacles cause during the busy periods is absolutely crazy the whole set up needs sorting out properly and the highways department need to stick to repairing the hundreds of potholes in the area, if the idea was traffic calming why not just impose a 20 mph limit through the village. I just wonder if these people spending our tax money ever come back to see the mess they create. R Light

In all honesty, I feel there are enough designated parking areas in Northwich for disabled drivers without further provisions being made in this carpark.

I'm not sure 'special treatment' is needed to serve those who otherwise want be treated the same as everyone else. Not to mention the fact many cars display their Blue Badges whilst parking on the double yellow lines behind McDonalds whilst 'other drivers' now have to display the 'Yellow Tickets' on their vehicles for parking in the same spots kindly issued by The Cheshire West and Chester Parking Enforcement Team!

God forbid someone with a blue badge is inconvenienced while somebody without a blue badge tries to find a car parking space. There are enough disabled parking bays in Northwich, changing this car park to disabled only discriminates against those without a blue badge.

Oh dear, oh dear. If it isn't bad enough that blue badge holders feel fit to deposit their car where they like, especially on every inconvenient spot possible usually called double yellow lines. To be reading this letter which clearly discriminates those who don't have a "weparkanywhere.com badge". Why should blue badge holders have all the privileges, I pay my vehicle excise duty just like the. What about those with children should they be discriminated against too just because some selfish, rude, ignorant person who can't be bothered to wait like the rest of us in a queue thinks they should have special preferences because they have a special badge.

whether you have a blue badge or not,it is still rediculous the way people block off the entrance and happily create congestion outside the police station while standing on their sills, hoping this will conjure up a parking space. heres a suggestion, get back in your car, drive round the carpark and see if there is a space. if there isnt go to another car park. with the time youuse to indulge in this pathetic habit (unique to northwich folk it seems) you could easily have walked from the outer car parks in the same time! with regards to blue badge holders, remember you may need one yourself one day.

Being a blue badge does make you any more worthy than those without one also I do not agree this car park should be made especially for blue badge holders, if you are a holder of one of these badges (which I am by the way) you can park virtually anywhere. How about making more spaces for parent and child, it is very frustrating trying to open your car door and reach in to either I clip the child seat or even try and reach in to get the child's carry car seat out without you door catching the car parked next to you. I am sure everybody would be extremely cross if they came back to their vehicle and it had a scratch on it. So northwich planners make more PARENT&CHILD spaces please!

I have a blue badge. I have it as when I was working I was attacked by a patient who broke my back. I have paralysis of one leg, partial lack of feeling in the other and chronic pain syndrome. I don't walk well and not at all without my crutch and foot support. I do not deem my badge to be a park anywhere licence, I never park on a double yellow line unless it is the absolute last resort. Paying your vehicle licence duty has nothing to do with parking. I pay for the police and fire brigade but have never called either but I don't bleat about having to pay.
Also I do not believe this, or any car park in Northwich or anywhere else should be exclusive to blue badge holders. The problem with this particular car park is the design of the entrance, nothing more. If non blue badge holders can't find a space then wait by all means, but at least have the courtesy not to bring the whole show to a standstill. Oh and I would swap my condition and my blue badge with any able bodied person who thinks life is easy for people like me. You really should stop reading the Daily Mail
