A DAD was furious after an Aston Martin driver parked his £100,000 motor in a disabled bay.

Daniel Harvey, 38, couldn’t take his six-year-old son over for coffee after the ‘selfish’ motorist took the last disabled seat.

He said the car did not have a disability card despite being half in and half out of the room in Birmingham, West Midlands on Saturday.

Daniel said: “It was around noon and we had gone to collect some things and have a coffee.

“To do this, we had to take my son’s wheelchair out of the car.

“The disabled bays are larger for a variety of reasons. He doesn’t do very well with just staying in one place.

“He likes to run around or be pushed around.

“By that point my partner had already gone off to get some of the things we wanted while I waited to see if a spot was available.

“We waited 20 minutes and he started getting restless in the car so we had to give up. I said, ‘Let’s just get on with the rest of the day’.”

He said he shared the image to make the driver “think twice about doing it again”.

Daniel added: “If you don’t live it, you don’t know what it’s like.

“You might think it’s ‘just five minutes’ or ‘just ten minutes,’ but it stopped us from doing what we wanted to do.”

“I know it’s a bit stereotypical, but you tend to see it when you’re in the supermarkets or other places.

“You see nicer cars, the really expensive cars in handicapped bays.

“I can only imagine that they either can’t park their car in a smaller bay or they don’t want their car to get scratched.

“But if they were to experience the life of a disabled person or someone caring for them, they would probably think twice.”
