Local Campaign To Have Parking Permits Extended


A Tipperary family is campaigning to have the availability of parking permits extended to people with intellectual, developmental and cognitive disabilities.

Tom O’Dwyer, whose son has autism, says it is his experience that people with disabilities that are not necessarily physical also need the protection that is provided by access to more convenient parking spaces.

This week Tom launched a petition in which he is calling on the Minister for Transport to take into account the specific needs of the Irish public rather than simply complying with the minimum standards required by the EU.

The petition is available throughout Tipperary town.
