I thought this might be of interest, given the number of forum posts on disabled access issues recently :

A disabled pensioner has complained he is being squeezed off buses by mums with buggies.
http://www.oxfordmail.net/news/headlines/display.var.2020922.0.disabled_man_cant_board_buses.php

Both Oxford Bus Company and Stagecoach have expressed sympathy for Bob Light, 65, who was unable to board four buses in succession outside The Swan in Cowley Road because pushchairs occupied the wheelchair space.

Mr Light, 65, from Headington, said many mothers were extremely considerate, but claimed that his attempts to travel into the city centre were becoming a nightmare.

If pushchairs are left in the space for wheelchairs, mums are requested but not legally obliged to fold them up.
