Woman Fined for Posting Photo of Police Car in Handicapped Space

Police Parked in Handicapped Space

A Spanish woman has been ordered to pay €800 for posting photo of a police car parked in handicapped space.

The unnamed woman, a resident of Petrer in Alicante, south-east Spain, posted the photo on her Facebook page with the comment “Park where you bloody well please and you won’t even be fined”.

The Citizens Security Law, popularly known as the gagging law and which came into force on 1 July, prohibits “the unauthorised use of images of police officers that might jeopardise their or their family’s safety or that of protected facilities or police operations”. Fines could range from €600 to €30,000.
