Find a parking space is not always easy, especially during busy times in city centers. Some cars are exhausted, or sometimes simply disrespectful, so do not hesitate to park on parking spaces reserved for people with disabilities justifying itself for a quick race that only takes a few minutes in the best of cases.
An action which, we know, is comparable to a genant parking and that can cost a fine of 135 euros, see even the immobilization of the vehicle and the pound. But beyond the penalty, these motorists encroach mainly on the right reserved for people with reduced mobility to park near their destination ; something that is not a luxury but an obvious need.
And to raise awareness of these incivilities, theAPF (Association of Paralyzed France) has carried out a marketing action on a human scale but which is worth the detour. Thursday, December 13, a group of people with disabilities met on the boulevard François Mitterrand in Clermont-Ferrand accompanied by members of the association. They were joined by a journalist fromFrance Bleu Pays d'Auvergne who was able to mediate the information via Twitter.
Their idea? Park wheel chairs on parking spaces, normally accessible to all motorists, on which is placed a simple but very effective message: "I have it for 5 minutes". A small sentence that obviously refers to the excuse usually used to justify incivility still too frequent today.
A simple but very effective action, which deserves to be widely shared on social networks. An equally malignant idea of theAPF to bring to light this problem of everyday life, which is an injury, all too often taken lightly by many valid users.
