No One, Heart and respiratory problems are a valid basis for an application for a Disabled Persons Permit, the GP would decide on the severity of the individual's condition with regard to their application for such a permit. A quick look online for a definition of 'disability' resulted in this... "referring to people having either physical or mental impairments", therefore a person with a broken leg would have the right to apply for a temporary disabled person's permit as they are .... 'disabled' (obviously certain conditions apply in those cases and each application is assessed on its own merits). The rationale behind providing disabled persons parking spaces (in public areas) is to assist where possible, disabled persons to gain access to shopping areas (in general)and also to reduce the walking distance from their residence to their vehicle (if they are a driver). Not unreasonable by most people's standards I would think. Hope this helps.
