Abuse of Disabled Parking Spaces

Reported in the Car parking category anonymously at 09:24, Sat 23 February 2013

Sent to Wycombe District Council 1 minute later

The disabled space belonging to No.30 Woodside Road is not being used by the person it was designated for, Mr Litchfield (?) Senior has given up driving and sold his car, ever since, his son has been using the spot and verbally abusing and intiminating anyone who go's within spitting distance of his car and space, even going to the extreme measure of installing CCTV to monitor 'his' spot, which in fact belongs not to him but his father and he has no right to use. The space belonging to No.28 contains a car which rarely moves and never with the owner driving it. Unfortunately Mr Steptoes illness has progressed to the point where he is unable to drive, the car is now sat, never moving unless one of his family needs it as a pool car which is very rare, his son has to push the car to start it every 6 to 8 weeks to keep it going. As Mr Steptoe has a garage and parking spot at the rear of his property, his disabled parking spot really not needed anymore. It has been well over a year since Mr Steptoe has driven.

  • Mr Steptoe lives at 26 not 28 and we have been told that he will never drive again, he see's the car as a sign that he has not given up but does it need to be on the road to do that?

  • The council should remove the disabled parking bay is not used by the person who it was designated for.

    Phone the council and write a letter of complaint.

    Keep trying. Keep persisting.

    I had the same problem a few years ago. Disability car not used by the person who was disabled but used by the son. He used the disabled parking bay as his own private space. Disabled person never used car so the free disability car was being used by son. Taking advantage of his mother.

    However mother passed away and disability lines were removed.

  • Mr Steptoe's car has now not moved for approx 4 months, the tyres are now looking a little soft, Mr Litchfield jr is still using his fathers parking spot and verbally abusing anyone who goes near the car including a bunch of 7-8 year olds who were playing on the path near it. He also seems to have added a microphone to his cctv camera's so I can't curse him as I pass his house lol

  • My neighbour abuses his disabled parking space by deliberately parking horizontally instead of vertically which is the way the space has been set out please can you investigate this and hopefully get him to consider everyone else in the close instead of just himself
