No parking for wheelchair users

With Internet news we're able to see local news from virtually everywhere so we often follow the US news and came across this wheelchair user revenge article which we thought was worth a post. Essentially wheelchair users protested in Georgia as they were fed up with able bodied motorists taking the disable parking spots all too often. So they teamed up with a group called Tree Of Life and took to the streets. Armed with dozens of wheelchair including self propelled and transit but no powerchairs, they blocked off parking spaces outside the city's Rustaveli metro station using 2 wheelchairs per parking bay to prove their point. Organisers were clever and left only one parking space unblocked and reserved for people with disabilities.

Of course, there were a few who were no so impressed by their protest which comes ahead of the United Nations Day of Persons with Disabilities on 3 December but all in all the campaign was deemed a success and backed up by wheelchair users and general public alike. As most folk commented, its not uncommon for disabled spots to be taken by the lazy and not spared for wheelchair users.
