Parking spaces are a premium resource and in this case a public asset. I think we should be thinking harder and more laterally about appropriate solutions to the problems of all the disabled, not just disabled badge holders who have use of a car, some of whom are visiting patients in the hospital, some of whom are accompanying relatives to appointments etc. In the case of parking facilities at public buildings we should be thinking about the needs of all users including availability of parking but more importantly, suitable public transport options, for everyone, not just disabled badge holders who drive. How much would paid parking at the hospital raise? Would you rather have parking facilities or medical facilities?
