Almost 3,000 drivers caught illegally parking in spaces for the disabled last year  

In 2015, police booked 2,965 drivers for parking in spaces assigned for disabled persons out of a total number of parking offences of 3,574, they said on Saturday.

They also said that in the first six months of this year, there were 1,103 cases of parking in disabled spots out of a total of 3,695 illegal parking offences.

“Bookings are not end in themselves,” an announcement said.  “Our main focus is to raise awareness that these parking places belong to our fellow human beings with disabilities, not to those who are able-bodied. This should be embedded in the consciousness of society.”

Campaigns for such offences would be intensified, police said.
