In England, Lance Corporal Johno is facing a bit of a high demand from his government. After losing a leg in Afghanistan, Johno applied three times for a disabled parking badge. They finally informed him of the reason: he “may get better.”
They are clearly a lot tougher in England in dispensing parking stickers.
He has been repeatedly ticketed for using disabled spots when he has used his wheelchair due to complications with his leg.
He tried to explain that once his leg was blown off by a mine, he was unlikely to “get better.” He noted “I replied that they possibly did not quite understand the situation and that I thought it unlikely my leg would grow back.”
