In Russia they have come up with a great ad campaign and way of stopping people who don’t need it from using disabled parking spaces.
A fine mist (not visible to the eye) is sprayed across the parking space and a projection of some of Russia’s disabled community who tell the person to stop and think of where they are parking and why it is marked as a disabled parking spot. The system only displays for cars that do not have the disabled sticker displayed on their car. The stickers are picked up by cameras and will not activate the message. Could use a few of these in New Zealand, have seen more than my share of people using these spots when they should not.
