Mum discovers ‘nasty’ note on her car for using a pram-only spot despite having a baby onboard.
Mother-of-three, Zena Hussein, dropped her husband and three children – including her one-year-old child – at the entrance of a shopping centre and parked her car, when she returned she was shocked to find a horrible note under her tyre abusing her for parking where she did.
‘YOU SHOULD NOT PARK HERE. YOU GOT NO PRAM OR BABY WITH YOU, YOU FAT PIECE OF S***,’ the note read.
Ms Hussein said ‘some people are so harsh and nasty’.
‘This needs to be read by the person who wrote this and put it under my tyre,’ Ms Hussein told Daily Mail Australia.
‘Yes, I’m a mother of three and my youngest baby is one years old. Yes, I have a double pram in my car! Yes, I have two baby car seats in my car.
‘The point is, don’t jump to conclusions if you don’t see me push a pram or hold a baby as I dropped my husband off at the entrance with the kids while I went and found a car spot.
‘People are so nasty and quick to judge.
‘I hope whoever wrote this note gets their facts right before they judge anyone.’
What is the law?
According to the NRMA, the parking spaces with a distinctive pram symbol are not enforced under the law.
Any driver can legally park in these spots – but a car park management have the right to ask someone to vacate the space if they don’t have a pram or infant.
It’s at the management’s discretion how they choose to enforce parent parking rules.
NRMA said the right thing to do comes down to ‘common courtesy’.
Do you use the pram only parking bays at all?
