Mum sparks massive online debate after asking whether pram-only parking spaces are for parents with children who can walk or those with prams only.
The woman posted on a local Facebook community group after she noticed that ’90 per cent of the parents that park here can walk and don’t have prams’.
‘Are these bays just for parents (with kids) that can walk or just for prams only for like kids like newborn or that can’t walk because 90 per cent of parents that park here there kids can walk and don’t have prams?,’ she posted.
The post attracted close to 200 comments, with mothers and fathers disagreeing about the nature of the parking spaces, shares Daily Mail.
While some thought it was perfectly fine to use the spaces with toddlers, others disagreed entirely.
‘I use them with my toddler sometimes as the spaces are bigger and you need to open the door wider to get them out of the car seats,’ one woman wrote.
‘Anyone can park there. Literally anyone! It’s a recommendation not a law,’ another added.
What is the law?
Any driver can legally park in these spots – but a car park management have the right to ask someone to vacate the space if they don’t have a pram or infant.
It’s at the management’s discretion how they choose to enforce parent parking rules.
NRMA said the right thing to do comes down to ‘common courtesy’.
Do you use the pram only parking bays at all?
