A Kerry County Councillor is calling for the fine for illegally parking in disabled bays to be doubled.

Councillor Terry O’Brien made the call at the recent Tralee Municipal District meeting, calling for the council to increase the fine imposed on people who illegally park in disabled spots.

The council says, however, that parking fees are determined by central government; currently the fine for illegal parking in disabled bays is €80.

Councillor O’Brien says until there’s a serious penalty, people will continue to do it; he’s calling on the Government to increase the fine.
