Garda clampdown on drivers using disabled permits fraudulently

Gardai have been clamping down on drivers using disabled permits fraudulently as part of Operation Enable, with several drivers facing a day in court.

On Monday one driver who was already attending court in Dublin was found to be displaying a disabled permit registered to another vehicle.

Gardai said the permit was seized and the driver now faces another day in court.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday further vehicles were seized by Gardai from the Dublin Metropolitan Region.

Gardai said the disabled permits were being used fraudulently, and they had seized them and towed the vehicles.

Operation Enable has been set up to remind motorists to respect the wheelchair accessible parking bays in Dublin City Centre and to prompt disabled parking permit holders to respect the conditions attached to the parking permit.
