If you have been, or are diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease, and suffer any disability from it, such as shortness of breath, pain, fatigue or lack of mobility you should as a matter of priority apply for a ‘Disability Parking Permit’. This permit will give you many concessions for parking ranging from totally free parking to significantly reduced charges and relaxing of time limits. In most cases you will need a letter from your GP, but the permit is free. The permit applies to the person with the disability (the permit holder), therefore it can be used in any vehicle the permit holder is travelling in.
As of June 2014 there is an Australian wide Disability Parking Scheme being introduced in all states and territories. All states and territories differ slightly on how to, and where to apply. Similarly, it would pay to check on what conditions of use apply in your own state or territory.
