Parking a nightmare for disabled

Ayanda Joe, Mandela Park

Why do people with disabilities have to pay for parking whereas we have to pay for the disabled parking permit at the City of Cape Town.

Again, in order to obtain the so called disabled parking permit we incur medical costs as part of the requirement that City has put in place in order to get the permit. Therefore a disabled individual spends approximately R500 and yet we must pay R16 per 15 minutes to park, yet some of us can take approximately 10 minutes to get out of the car. Sifelani?
