I think it should be a requirement of any and all municipalities, cities, towns, etc. in the entire country that they should have to have a handicapped adult assist in the design of parking lots and the locations of the handicapped parking. So many places have these parking places in very inconvenient places and sosmetimes they are the farthest spots from the entrance of the store/restaurant, (...) View more

I do like the idea mentioned of the close in spots, slightly larger than average, for those without assistive devices. The current disabled spots take up 2 parking spaces. This is another of those "This is an obvious fix to a problem, but it will take decades to get in" type of ideas. It's a win-win idea. The parking lot owners don't sacrifice 2 spots for those not needing (...) View more

I was reported to this sight a few weeks ago...I had spent 3 weeks in the hospital,5 months in a wheelchair and another 6 months in rehab. I walk with a limp and have constant pain. The day that I was reported, was the first day I was off an assistive device in nearly a yr. Had 3 temp placards and just gotten the perm one 2 days before. Went to the dr, he does not hand them out to anyone, he (...) View more
Looking around this website has given me a broader view of the topic across the many states in the US. Learning about the different state policies has been enlightening. I was curious if any one knows this:
Do any states have visually distinct permits for disabled drivers vs. disabled passengers? I think this would cut down on a lot of the fraudulent use.
In MD, the most common misuse (...) View more
I see several self righteous people take offense for people like me who are "disabled/handicapped". You really don't know what it is like to have to walk a block or two because someone healthy person did not obey the law. I am educated and realize that some people do not look disabled. I have days where someone could say the same about me. When I ask the driver of the illegal (...) View more
My mother is 69 years old and has always been healthy/lively. Three and a half years ago, she had a horrendous fall from a ladder and her leg was - well - put back on/together/knee replacement.... In addition, she has had breast cancer twice (just over 2 years ago). After the leg accident, she was issued a handicapped placard, and certainly needed it. For the past year or more, she has been fine. (...) View more
I am a 60 yr old diabetoc-amputee-paraplegic with legal handicapped plates on my vehicle. Recently, while parking at the Super-Store (Biggest in America), I cae out of the store and found a $300.00 ticket on my windshield! The claim was that I had "touched" the handicapp CROSSHATCH area that was there to assist ONLY those who were legally parked in the handicapped space I (...) View more
This is the stupidest waste of time I have ever heard of and possibly the most ignorant bunch I have ever yet to meet. My husband and I both have disabilities, we are NOT HANDICAPPED, his disability is visible and mine is not. If anyone EVER had the gall to watch me try and live my life and write down where I park I would really give it to them.
Yes, I understand my message is probably a (...) View more
My son has Becker's Muscular Dystrophy. He is 9 years old and walks normally. He just sometimes can't walk very far and doesn't have the stamina of boys his age. We normally leave the wheelchair in the trunk of the car, only using it when he gets tired or when we know we will be somewhere for long periods of time. We park in handicapped spaces because we never know when he will get (...) View more
