Thank you for extra disabled spaces
During the month of December 2019, there were articles published in The Royal Gazette regarding the new disabled parking in the City of Hamilton. I understand many negative comments have been made on this subject.
On behalf of the physically challenged, I would like to thank the Corporation of Hamilton for the extra disabled parking spaces. These parking spaces make the difference between our being able to shop or not.
I have often returned home for lack of a disabled parking space, and then rely on friends and family to shop with, or for, me. This enables us to enjoy a little more independence and dignity by being able to do what everyone else takes for granted.
On a personal note, I am unable to use the newly installed parking meters in the three parking lots through the City of Hamilton.
I would also like to point out, to those unaware of the fact, we pay $25 a year for the disabled parking voucher, as well as having to use the EasyLink, which gives us two hours' parking instead of one.
