Parking – Doin’ it Right!
I’m so excited to be driving around in our accessible van. It really has made life so much easier with Aidan. That being said, we are completely restricted to those fabulous accessible parking spaces. The only Plan B is to go home. So BlogMaster Uncle Joshy has come up with some ways to communicate our message.
Also, before I forget, while we’re talking about cars, a friend of mine recently managed to get a good deal when renewing her car insurance. She told me all about how a no money down car insurance policy turned out to be the best deal. I think I’m going to have to check out some of these offers and see if I can find something too!
I’m really not into name calling and don’t plan on using these. However, if I’m having one of those days and really need to get into that
coffee shop, educational facility, and there is a motorcycle or sexy midlife crisis car in a space with those lines on it, well, I can’t make any promises. Those lines are there for a reason…for me and my accessible van drivin’ peeps.
This is what I plan to say on my good behavior days.
It reads, ” We just got our cool new wheelchair-accessible van and would like to say thank-you for leaving some parking space so we can access the spiffy automated ramp.”
Consider yourself educated and prepared. If you would like some copies of these, contact me and I’ll send them along and you can help educate others. Now, bonus points for city officials: Please don’t allow tour buses in our beautiful touristy towns to take up our parking spaces. Please make sure our parking spaces are sufficiently plowed in the winter. There is no such thing as squeezing in with a ramp and wheelchair.
Safe Parking People!
