When you park without a placard you are taking away another persons accessability. Nobody is judging you, but not knowing the law is no excuse for breaking it. Tags are available and all it takes is a request to a doctor. You are judging other by not obeying the rules. Remember Driving is a privledge not a right. I am disabled learn to get a tough hide as everone stares when your diffrent.
Years ago my husband used to place the following sign on a cheating parker STUPIDITY IS NOT A HANDICAPP! Since than I have wondered why the DMV dosent offer incentives to the disabled who only get a tiny check an incentive. When they report a cheater they would recieve a percentage of fine. As most fines are between $250 an $500 it would add up! The DMV would get more money and the disabled would (...) View more
This is my second post today, I have been confined to a wheelchair for over 25 years so I know what I am talking about. I just can't believe the ignorance of some people, saying, "Just because you can't see my handicap doesn't mean I don't have one." That is right, you are handicapped, NOT disabled. Please don't get me started!
Can we talk? I don't usually do this, I'm not a very outspoken person. I am just tired of having my rights abused. You see I am confined to a wheelchair due to an automobile accident. I don't drive, I have head injury and driving wouldn't be too smart.
I live with my fiancée, so he takes me where I need to go. We have a handicapped tag, so parking shouldn't be a (...) View more
I was walking along the sidewalk in Long Branch, NJ. Something came blowing toward me. It was a handicap placard. I'm sure some one is missing it who needs it. I flagged down an officer, who told me he didn't know what to do with it, nor did he allow me to give it to him (our finest at work here). My car is in the shop for at least another week, so can't walk into the DMV (...) View more

Ridiculous! Someone left one of your notes on my car. I have a legal handicap tag. Although, I have no viable "disabilities" my spine is fused and it's difficult for me to walk at time. Who are you to judge me? I think it's incredibly rude and judgmental of you to leave this paper in my car! There are maybe 20 or more spots where I park and many cars with OUT and handicap tag (...)

To the one that posted on the 20+ people who park on the street in LA, I agree that fake tags should be turned in. However, just because the handicap is not evident to you, doesn't mean it is not there. I park there. I do so because I have had surgery on both knees, and will need to do so again in the near future. By the time I get home after walking at work all day, I have to ice my knees. (...) View more

I was surprised to see there were no entries for Maryland that i could find in this blog. I am really irritated by the lack of concern from the officials here in Howard County Maryland. I have contacted several agencies including the police who have informed me they cannot issue citations to abusers because it is on private property. The owners of this private school property have been informed (...) View more

Does anyone happen to have a list of numbers or email address of each state where we can contact to get information on disabled placards owners? I work for a University and have confiscated dozens of placards being used by students fraudulently. The problem our office is faced with is that we have out of state students and we have no way of identifying who the placard belongs to. In the state of (...) View more
