A CRACKDOWN on able-bodied drivers who use disabled parking spaces is under way at a Huddersfield supermarket.
Staff at Morrisons at Waterloo have noticed an increase in such selfish behaviour.
Joe Aveyard, the store's assistant deputy manager, said: "We have noticed a problem with misuse of these spaces.
"We have stickers that we put on cars parked in the wrong spot, politely asking them to park elsewhere."
He added: "We also actively encourage staff to look out for people who are parked wrongly.
"It is something we take seriously."
The move comes after a national survey yesterday showed that the number of cars parking in disabled spots without a valid badge has risen from 18% to 21%.
The survey was by umbrella pressure group Baywatch.
A spokesman for the Disabled Drivers' Motor Club said disabled people were sick to death of not being able to park. The problem had to be tackled now.
Baywatch is running a campaign to try and combat the problem. It includes a poster campaign and the ticketing of cars.
