Police are warning drivers not to abuse disabled parking spaces in the Brisbane City area. You can report disability parking offences in Brisbane City to Policelink and have the complaint linked to Operation No Permit No Park (QP1500008862) for follow up and increased patrols of the area.
Police would like to remind permit holders to have permits displayed correctly in the windscreen so that the permit and the expiry date are clearly visible from the outside. Remember blue permits are no longer valid and that the valid permits are either the red permit or the Australian disability permit. These must be in date to be valid.
We are working in conjunction with Myer Centre car park and Parking Secure car parks to ensure disability parking bays are enforced therefore leaving them free for permit holders.
In 2014 the incidents of parking abuse is beginning to decline.
