This Bay is Someone's Day

Media Release 26 November 2020

To celebrate International Day of People with Disability, the City is joining forces with the National Disability Service (NDS) and local governments around WA to help educate people about the correct use of ACROD parking bays.

A new campaign titled This Bay is Someone’s Day: Park Right Day and Night will launch next week, Thursday 3 December to highlight the impact that parking illegally in an ACROD bay can have on someone’s day.

City of South Perth Mayor Greg Milner said ACROD bays are an important service offered to those with a disability.

“More than 90,000 West Australians with severe mobility restrictions have an ACROD permit. Parking in an ACROD bay without a permit can take away a person’s independence and stop them going about their day,” Mayor Milner said.

ACROD bays across the City will feature eye-catching road stickers reminding drivers that This Bay is Someone’s Day and Park Right, Day and Night.

The State Government has increased on-the-spot fines for illegally parking in an ACROD bay from $300 to $500. Court imposed penalties have also increased from $2,000 to $5,000.

The City is one of 25 local governments across WA supporting this campaign, in partnership with the RAC and the Department of Communities. For more information, contact the City to speak with a Community Development Officer or click here.
