Hey, wait a minute!!

We all want to find the perfect parking spot, the one that is closest to our destination. For the disabled this can mean the difference between participation and isolation. A convenient 'disabled' parking space might just make it possible for someone to live with a degree of independence or, at least, greater social interaction.

So why do able-bodied people take clearly marked 'disabled' parking spots? What's the thinking?

I like to think it's done with a lack of awareness rather than malicious intent. But what to do?

Check out this novel approach in a Russian shopping mall, a holographic video that startles, educates, and effectively makes the point:"Disabled' should not mean invisible or disregarded.
