Letters: Disability parking options getting worse in Richmond

A Richmond News reader completely agrees with a previous letter writer's view of disabled parking spots in the city
An example of a van-accessible parking spot that doesn't have enough room for a wheelchair to get off the ramp.

Dear Editor,

Re: “Richmond malls problem areas for accessible parking, says advocate,” Online, Aug. 18.

I completely completely agree with Vincent Miele. To take it a step further, the property owners do not help people with disabilities either.

I do not know if you have noticed lately, but these parking spots have been relegated to the backs of the lots to make room for the order pick-ups or for families (SuperStore, Blundell Medical Centre, just to name a few.)

Also, some lots offer free parking for customers with a decal on the south side of the parking lot and pay parking on the north side of the building. Yet both have the same signage. I found out the hard way after I got an $89 ticket.

Good luck in trying to talk to someone at these parking lot management companies!
