Free parking for the handicapped

A Labour party initiative to scrap parking charges for people who are officially registered as disabled looks set to win majority support in parliament, news agency ANP reports.

Currently, parking for the handicapped is free in some areas and not in others. Parking meters are also impossible to use by some people with a handicap, Labour MP Marjo van Dijken says.
