I drive a van with a mobility hoist to transport my 17 year old daughter who is in a wheelchair. I find many of the wheelchair parks around the Wellington area are unsafe when unloading from the hoist at the back of the van. Often they are in high traffic areas at malls or on streets. Parallel parks do not have enough room to let the hoist down and we always run the risk of having someone park too close behind so we can't open the hoist. Often I end up parking in a normal park in a quiet area of a car park so we can safely unload.
