Fife Council will paint double yellow lines at Kirkcaldy Leisure Centre to prevent disabled drivers being blocked in.
Fife Sports and Leisure Trust asked council officials to step in following complaints from blue badge holders.
The centre’s car park on the Esplanade has a designated disabled parking area but inconsiderate drivers have been parking behind vehicles there, preventing them from leaving.
Traffic management consultant Phil Clarke said it is hoped double yellow lines will ensure disabled people can use the bays unhindered.
“Enforceable disabled parking bays were implemented to help manage high demand for space, maintain safety around the centre and improve access for those with a blue badge,” he said.
“Despite restrictions being implemented in May 2016, drivers continue to park in some of the sections where no parking restrictions were implemented.
“Drivers double and sometimes triple park, regardless of whether their vehicle presents a problem for other road users, which has resulted in a number of operational issues for the centre.”

Mr Clarke said the existing legislation did not allow the council’s parking enforcement team to take action against drivers who park irresponsibly and he hoped people would be more considerate.
“As there are a large number of different drivers who undertake this practice, it is not practical to request that police be the sole means of enforcement,” he said.
“It would appear to be customers at the leisure centre that are doing it and it’s happening on a regular basis.”
