I hunt in an area that allows the disabled to hunt from a vehicle and use a vehicle. Well the able bodied guys have the permits and seem to be able enough to walk long distances and climb trees yet they need a permit to use a vehicle. This is more then just an invisible disability. Seems like no one wants to do anything about it over legal issues. Very frustrating when you work your butt off to (...) View more
It's ridiculously difficult to find parking on my street. A lot of us don't have driveways and the people who do have them NEVER park in them; they park on the street(and park like they're parking for 3 people) and leave their driveways completely empty.
Our neighbor got a handicapped parking spot in front of her house and SHE DOESN'T PARK IN IT. I feel like she's (...) View more
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
