'They’re for disabled people who can’t walk.'

13/10/2017

Wellington City Council is cracking down on able-bodied people misusing mobility parks.

The Council has collaborated with CCS Disability Action to create a new app to catch mobility parking frauds.

Wellington Mayor Justin Lester knows that able-bodied people using mobility parking is a real issue for anyone who has a disability.

"If you’re parked in a disabled car park you shouldn’t be there. And the reality is they’re there for a reason."

They’re there for disabled people who can’t walk.

The app Access Aware allows users to find mobility parking spots and to easily report infringements.

Access Aware can be downloaded from Google play or Apple store.
