Lady Bracknell | 16:17 UK time, Wednesday, 2 August 2006

Here's something which will no doubt gladden the heart of many an Ouch reader.
www.caughtya.org
describes itself as 'a "hall of shame" to expose people parking illegally in disability or mobility parking spaces'.
They hope to
• raise awareness of how often we are unable to park because someone else is using "our" spaces,
• stigmatise disability parking abusers
• track how often disability parking offences take place,
• tar and feather repeat offenders (only kidding),
• see active and regular participation from visitors to the site. list end
Once you've registered with Caughtya, you can have hours of fun taking photographs of the vehicles you see parked illegally in disabled parking bays and
then uploading them on to the site once you get back to your computer. (Lady Bracknell suggests, however, that you might want to exercise a degree of caution
if the vehicle's owners are around: it's just possible that they might take exception to you gathering photographic evidence of their misdemeanours. As
the Caughtya authors say, "If you think there's any chance someone might become aggressive or violent at you taking pictures of their vehicle, don’t do
it !!! Your personal safety comes first.")
At the time of writing, there have been no infractions posted from the
UK
Lady Bracknell is quietly confident that the Ouch community will jump (metaphorically speaking, of course) at the chance to rectify that omission.
