Terminal 21: Handicapped woman's disability trike removed to make way for Ford Mustang

Security guards at Pattaya's Terminal 21 shopping center removed a handicapped woman's motorcycle and sidecar from a disabled person's parking spot. 

 

It was then dumped in the middle of the road at the fancy shopping center. 

 

Meanwhile a multi-million baht sky blue Ford Mustang - with two able bodied people - parked in the spot instead. 

 

The handicapped lady - Kamonwan Kraratpetch who uses a wheelchair - watched this happening from a restaurant where her and a friend were having lunch.

She had arrived with her friend and even asked security if it was OK to park there. They confirmed that it was. 

 

The computer science student said she was not in time to film the actual moving of her bike. But she went on Facebook to ask what netizens thought saying facetiously of the well-heeled able bodied couple seen taking her spot: 

 

"Do you want to be disabled like me?"

 

A video on Sanook that had been posted online showed the couple walking somewhat sheepishly away from their fancy and expensive Mustang. 

 

Terminal 21 were forced to issue a grovelling apology in which they blamed the security personnel who they said had been warned about their future conduct and are better trained now in what to do.

 

They admitted that their own security had removed the disabled lady's bike and allowed it to be replaced with the Mustang. 

 

They promised that it would not happen again.

Shameful across the board. Firstly the security for not only moving a genuinely disabled persons vehicle from a handicapped parking bay, and then to the miserable sods in the mustang, who used a disabled space to park. While I am pleased to hear that the security staff got bawled out for their poor behaviour, chances are high the guy with the mustang will continue to just park wherever he pleases. Some people are just scum, thinking that a few quid makes them above the socially acceptable norm.

Spot on darksidedog , I was about to write exactly the same !

And just wondering if the venue management have instructed security, and other staff, to make sure folks in expensive cars etc., are well taken care of. 

 

 

Highly likely.
