Not enough carpark spaces for handicapped drivers

Despite our claims to being a caring, all-inclusive society, I'm amazed that many carparks, whether HDB, private, or those of shopping centres, still have no reserved spots for handicapped drivers.

If they do, it is just one or two spaces and these are usually occupied, sometimes by cars without the proper handicap carpark label.

How do we let people of different abilities live independently with dignity if we do not make it possible for them to do so?

There should be at least one or preferably two, reserved spots outside each HDB block, shopping centre or any given private estate; in fact, it should be made mandatory, as should the provision of ramps .
