People who abuse disabled parking spaces in Kildare to face fines of €150

Kildare County Council's head offices at Aras Chill Dara, Naas

Drivers who park illegally in disabled parking spaces across Co. Kildare will face stiffer penalties from next month.

The Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport is raising the fixed charge for parking in a disabled parking bay without displaying a valid permit from €80 to €150.

The new rules will come into effect on March 1.
