I'm not handicapped but I am vigilant in the repression of those illegally using the parking spots designated for handicapped persons. I actually have a photo of a motorcycle in Brookhaven PA this morning with a Police Courtesy badge.. yknow the kind that keeps you from being pulled over for speeding, parked in a handicapped spot this morning.

Hi There. Dec 23, 2009 I was driving a friend around who is handicap. We were in the Los Angeles area waiting for a handicap space when the car behind us quickly drove into the space. Not only was the driver not handicap he had a little girl with him. They jumped out of their car and raced into the store leaving us still without a spot. We shortly afterward pulled into a space. My friend approached the driver in the store and told him in a soft manner that he not stole our space but parked in a handicap zone. He was told to watch it because he didn't know who he's talking to and that he would harm him if he didn't get the F*#@ out his face. I grabbed my friend away from the guy who had no problem of harm a man that could barely stand let alone walk. We did take a picture of the car but the police said they could do nothing. No wonder he was so cocky.

Of course, you are all correct that it is improper to park in a properly marked handicap space if you are not authorized by your State to do so.

I am a Parking Enforcement Specialist and spend approximately 50 hours a month as a Volunteer. I ticket lots of cars parked in handicap spaces when they don't have a permanent license tag showing the wheelchair symbol or a hanging permit on the mirror.

I find that approximately 50% of the tickets I write turn out to be properly permitted individuals who forgot to display their mirror hanger. So maybe a little compassion would be in order. After all they are frequently elderly and can forget this chore. I search through the windows looking for evidence of a permit stuck in a door pocket or center console or above the sun visor. If I see it there, I will put a warning/remider on the windshield to remember to display the permit.

On the other hand there are lots of people who abuse the system. They will put a hanger on the instrument panel and cover an expired date with a book or paper of some kind. I also find a good many people simply place expired permits in view expecting that the enforcement officer will see the hanger but not read the expiration date. I doubly enjoy ticketing these cars.

Back to compassion. Simply because a person does not appear handicapped within the definition of your state, does not mean they are not. All persons who qualify for the permit are not obviously disabled. This is a tough one, particularly when you see what appears to be a teenager parking the car.

Many, many people are unaware that parking on the access aisle, stripped area is improper. I cite them when I see them, and warn them if I observe them parking there.

It is also illegal for the holder of a permit or non-holder to park on the access aisle. I ticket them as well. It prevents a handicapped person from parking next to them and using the stripped areas for wheelchairs, etc. I see this usually in large parking lots where parking is at a premium due to store sales. They seem to think its simply an unused space. Motorcycles are bad about this.

Then you have the real abusers. Those who make up fake permits or signs to put on the instrument panel. I cited a car the other day, a regular family sedan which was parked on the stripes. It had a computer generated sign (laminated for durability). It said "I have permission to park here from the Mall Security Department." It went on to claim the owner of the car was a wheelchair bound quadriplegic. The car was too small to have held any wheelchair let alone one designed to handle a quadriplegic.

I could go on and on.

st lucie nuclear power plant in st lucie fl is discriminating against the handicapped. they have denied access to all the handicapped spots at the front entrance unless you are a full time fpl employee. contractors, of which they bring in 2000-3000 extra, are put in a dimmly lit area some 300-400 ft from the entrance. or catch a ride on a non handicapped bus from a gravel lot.

If you are handicapped and have a legitimate business reason to be at the FPL Nuclear Power Plant, then I would suggest you communicate with the Security Department and request assistance. Homeland Security does not want persons handicapped or not, simply driving around or up to nuclear power plants. How simple would it be to load up a large van disguised as a handicap vehicle, with explosives and drive it to the closest parking spots to potentially sensitive areas? They are not discriminating against handicapped persons. They are preventing ALL persons except employees (who have been checked out) from approaching the plant and administrative offices. Sounds to me like you are just looking to complain about something.

INTERESTING CITATION I ISSUED.
I am a volunteer PES in Bradenton, FL. I issued a citation to a vehicle displaying a handicap parking permit. Only problem was the permit holder was deceased. The registered owner of the car (a 40 year old female) has not yet answered the citation. If she does not, then the next time she tries to renew the registration for the car, it will be rejected. If she should attempt to plead not guilty and want to go to court, the Judge could find her guilty of a criminal offense (misuse of permit) and fine her $500 and throw her in jail right there. I'll let you know what develops.

Today, January 6, 2012, I watched a commercial vehicle operated by Merry Maids park in the handicapped spot at Chic Fil A in Mt Laurel NJ at 12:08pm. The tags were not handicapped, the operator jumped out of the vehicle and ran inside as if in a race with no apparent gait impairment or limitation. I will be boycotting the Merry Maids company now.

today, a woman who was screaming at men who would not let her butt in line at the Media Pennsylvania Starbucks on routes 252 and 1, left her red accord idling in the handicapped spot with the radio at about 150dB and was irate when i told her i photographed her vehicle. she did not have a placard, she did not have appropriate tags. a vertical sign on a post was in plain sight directly in front of the blue-outlined spot. I have a photoghraph and would like to be able to submit to this blog.
