A friend of mine was hurt in a pretty odd accident a few weeks back. After a seemingly normal trip over something during a PT session she has ended up with a pinned collarbone, and a badly broken lower leg which has also been pinned. As such she is in a wheelchair for 6-8 weeks. Now, her hubby took her into town in his car. He parked in a disabled spot in a Council Car Park. Of course they didn't have a disabled badge, but there is no doubting that she is (albeit temporarily) disabled. He got a ticket, despite the fact that the Traffic Warden saw her in the wheel chair and was confronted (apparently politely). The question: Is he likely to win his appeal? Is it fair that she is denied the use of a disabled bay when clearly she is disabled - and some folk get the badge just because they are fat lazy bastards?
