We highlighted some critical issues to the media.
Abuse of parking lots designated for the disabled by members of the public who are physically normal.
We do not have an enforcement unit on the abuse of facilities. On facilities for the handicapped at buildings and premises, there were still many of such structures like shopping complexes and banks that failed to provide the utilities for the disabled. PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES ACT n Malaysia, there are the Persons With Disabilities Act (PWD Act) and the Act not sufficient to protect the interest of the handicapped.
PWD Act is 'toothless' as there is no enforcement unit. The Act is good for the disabled but it does not spell out the specific penalty for those who committed abused of the facilities for the disabled.
