On Frankfort Avenue today...
A construction truck taking up not one but two wheelchair parking spots when there were plenty of spaces on the road.
In fairness, when we found the driver and asked him to move, he did.
This is a huge pain in the ass normally. You find people using the wheelchair spots if they're just "popping in" to a shop or you will often see taxi drivers treating them like ranks.
As well as a wheelchair user, I'm a driver. So if a wheelchair parking spot isn't available, it's not that easy to find an alternative place to park, especially in town.
There aren't enough wheelchair parking spots in Dublin to cater to the amount of people with blue badges so please don't do it.
I will definitely delve further into this topic another time.
