Cannot believe Wirral driver's 'disgraceful' reaction

I HAVE just come home from a visit to my local chemist at Parkfield Medical Centre in New Ferry and am still in shock by what happened.

I was waiting to pull into a disabled parking space, which was taking a minute or so to allow an already parked car to drive out of the space.

My sister started to get out of the vehicle, she is on crutches she can't move as quickly as other 40 year olds, when a driver pulled up behind us and started to blast her car horn, wanting me to move.

Then she started to hurl abuse at my sister, calling her "selfish".

As she pulled out of the car park she started shouting at us, accusing us of being "benefits claimants".

I think her point was that all disabled people are living on benefits and are the lowest on earth.

My sister has had major back surgery and has very limited mobility. To be abused in this way is a disgrace.

I cannot believe anybody can behave like that towards another human being.

Believe me, if I knew her licence number I would have put it in this letter to embarrass her.

This is not uncommon in this selfish age we have witnessed the same incidents every day especially in supermarket car parks, the thing to do is keep a camera with you and photograph these offenders reg numbers.

Such a shame you had to be subjected to the abuse because of a complete meat head. I use the same surgery myself and many a time have had a run in with a similar idiot whilst trying to park which I have to admit is a bind at the surgery with the really small car park. Maybe a drop of zone could be created there so the likes of your sister cold get out of the car safely, but as I have seen too many times there, some selfish nugget will probably park their car in that too!

This is disgraceful behaviour which should not go unpunished. I would advise making enquiries at the Medical Centre as their Car Park should be covered by CCTV. Not only should this incident be brought to the attention of the Medical Centre Practice Manager in case the offender can be identified and they might wish to take their own action but also an official complaint should be made to Merseyside Police.
