If the sign says handicapped only and $xxx fine-then if you are parked there and don't have a permit for such parking-stop complaining and do some exercsie and walk-you are not special otherwise everyone else should do the same thing but that isn't right either. The cops should crack down on this more and where i live, at night the local police come around and give out tickets while you (...) View more
Finally, My city( Appleton,WI ) is starting a program to monitor this problem.
This is just what i do now and some may not agree but i find it helpful.
When i go places with my mom driving for me we are constantly finding that their are no spots to get my ramp out. I have both a genetic disorder and two neurological disorders as well, i cannot stand, walk, write, or talk, and because of seizure i am not able to drive myself. all of this is fairly new for me, i was only (...)

I see too many of these post indicating "no visible handicap." Who do these idiots think they are; if a placard or license plate is issue - STORY OVER! Live with it. Where did you get your medical license? K-Mart; Big Lots? Come now, just complain about the ones that fail to post the placard or DO NOT have a disabled license plate - LEAVE US ALONE!

My daughter, in school learning special ed teaching, has volunteer in South America helping the disabled. Most have never had any adaptive equipment at all, and the buses and other areas are not accessible. She describes a 30 year old woman that is carried by her family to the disabled school. There, the woman lays on a blanket on the floor all day.
This grant run school has no pens or (...) View more
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

If you're interested in volunteering some time, contact the Program Coordinator Matthew Dwyer (...) 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
