Disabled parking awareness continues

Lynn Dunkley and Allison Duddy are working hard to create disabled parking awareness

Council had proclaimed November

Council had proclaimed November, 2013 as Disabled Parking Awareness Month. Although it is now February, the campaign to raise awareness continues. Following up with Alison Duddy, right and Lynn Dunkley, left, regarding the campaign, when asked about getting a message out to the public, they said that perhaps those with a disability permit needed a gentle reminder of the terms of their permit which states:  “Permit valid only when the vehicle has been parked in a designated parking stall for people with disabilities and the permit holder has left the vehicle.” This means that the person using a disabled parking stall with a disability permit must in fact, be out of the vehicle. There is no point in the disabled person using one of these stalls and sitting in the vehicle while their able-bodied passenger runs into a store. Certainly just a friendly reminder. Alison and Lynn are pictured here in front of the Quesnel and District Arts and Recreation Centre where one of several signs stands. They would like to thank Sign Stop for donating the signs to the campaign.
