[More recent images - new problems but a positive meeting: #186340, #186341.] [Image taken 17.9.22] Screwfix, James Street, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] Returning two days after I emailed the CEO of Screwfix: action. The designated and marked - in bright yellow paint with the recognised disabled symbol - disabled parking today had poles, a chain and (flimsy perhaps temporary) signs stating: Please be aware this bay is for disabled parking only. The route around the car park behind these spaces and in front of the ones against the back fence is sufficient for drivers to move around on yet leave room for disabled customers to park on the remainder of the designated spaces. It is very disappointing some drivers put their needs above those of others and that the (standard) disabled symbol is not enough. I saw someone drive into the site and up to this location... and then move to another space. Perhaps he had been here before and used the disabled parking. I have returned to this caption to add to it... How - and who - can get across the message to everyone who installs cycle parking and those who design the spaces it needs to go in, and those who commission it that disabled people who cycle need cycle parking too. This is lack of understanding stymies me getting organisations to make changes to the design or spacing of provision: #183407, or its location - including up a step, as here. Context: a) practicality of the cycle parking: #186157 and b) obstruction and hemming in by drivers: #186175. Other images here today: #186207, #186208, #186209, #186210, #186211, #186212.
