dc.description.abstractThe aim of this study was to investigate if the variables of; attitudes to disabled persons or designated parking spaces, correlated with the variables of self esteem or empathy. Additionally, participants who parked in designated spaces without a permit were invited to state why. Specifically the construct of convenience was examined in relation to parking behaviour. A mixed method quantitative and qualitative survey design was undertaken. Participants (N=113) were invited to complete self reporting questionnaires online or in hard copy format. No significant correlations were demonstrated between the main variables. However analysis did demonstrate that convenience was a significant reason for misusing designated spaces. The element of cognitive dissonance was demonstrated quantitatively through a Cramers V analysis and also qualitatively. Overall 89.3% of participants agreed it is unethical to misuse designated parking, 73.9% of those who did misuse spaces believed it was unethical to do so.
