Poll: Own up... Have you ever parked in a disabled space?

Ever? Time to confess.

A EUROPEAN ELECTION candidate came in for criticism yesterday after her campaign van was seen parked in a disabled parking spot outside a Westmeath Centra.

An “honest mistake” by the driver, the candidate said… But are the rest of us fully qualified to cast the first stone?

Last week, a judge called the practice of able-bodied motorists parking in illegal spots “boorish” and banned a driver from the roads for six months.

Time to confess (you’ll feel better). Have you ever illegally parked in a disabled space?
