So Lino, thats The Linoleum Surfer, is back again after a long hiatus and has written about one of the very topics that I was going to write about this week. Beat me to it, and an absolutely solid piece on dick heads who park in disabled parking spots, who just can't park at all, or who like to block other people in. It was a very entertaining read, and unlike Lino's usual ramblings, didn't take me 3 hours to finish. He does like to write.
There is a Facebook group, I found it a few weeks ago and filed it away for writing about, but Lino got there first. The facebook group is simply: No Disability = No Parking.
I urge you all to go and check out the group, and "like" it to lend your support to it. Basically if you see a vehicle parked in a disabled parking space and it does not have a disabled parking sticker on it, take a picture of it and post it to the group for all to see.
The Sabco shopping area in Qurum is regularly patrolled by ROP looking to dish out tickets and on two separate occasions I've seen ROP officers not issue tickets to vehicles in disabled parking spaces - poor enforcement of these parking spaces will just continue to see people abusing it.
Another personal gripe, as delightfully described by Lino, is the "doubler" which is invariably a car parked across two parking spaces. Perhaps the worst offenders of doubling are those who like to take 2 spaces at the Muscat Grand Mall. Asshats.
Go and check out the facebook group!
