At the heart of Europe

The freedom of movement for people is a founding principle of European construction.

Member States of the European Union have each established mechanisms that facilitate access to multiple services directly or indirectly related to mobility : reduced fares on public transport, reserved spaces, preferential parking spaces...

European society must organise the lives of 500 million citizens, which cannot be done without controls. For parking facilities, the « European parking card » is used. But what about all those disabled people who do not possess such a document? Furthermore, once the parking card is affixed behind the windshield, how do you present it to the train conductor, or at a museum's reception desk?
