Once again, we have posters on this blog who feel compelled to remind us that there are in fact non-visible disabilities and that persons with them do legitimately park in handicapped parking spaces and/or chastise us for possibly “judging” others. And once again I provide my stock reply.
1. EVERYONE KNOWS: I seriously doubt that anyone who posts on the blog or reports a possible (...) View more

Save a few people.
I happen to have a rare type of Muscular Dystrophy called McArdles Disease or McArdles Syndrome, it's also called Glycogen Storage Disease Type V. It has a one in a few hundred thousand occurance. There are ten types Glycogen Storage Disease that are 'invisible diseases'. There are just as many similar types of metabolic myopathies that have similar (...) View more
I was just commenting to my wife yesterday that there should be a website for bringing abusers of handicapped parking places to the attention of the public, and today I found this site. Kudos!!
YOU DON'T LOOK THE PART? Then it's likely you can not legally use the space! A Virginia handicap permit states the holder must use an assistive device (cane, walker, scooter, wheelchair, etc.) and be unable to walk more than 200 feet. If someone has a handicap permit but is feeling so well and confident that they do not need to use an assistive device and/or they walk more than 200 feet (...) View more
I know that there is much abuse of parking spaces that are intended for the disabled and that needs to be changed! However, I am equally disturbed by the comments and judging of others on this site and in this blog. There are many people who have handicapping conditions that are not necessarily obvious to anyone. Many posts refer to the person as "not looking handicapped" etc. (...) View more

This is a great blog and I'm happy to be here. I see so much abuse here in CT that none of your stories surprise me a bit.
I often wonder why police departments couldn't commit one officer for 1 day a month and just ticket people, not cars. Just have the officer sit there in an unmarked vehicle and if the permit holder is not in the car they should seize the permit and fine the (...) View more

Forgive my complaining. I am thrilled by this site and by the individuals who are taking this issue into their own hands. Only a collective morality around the abuse of handicapped parking spaces will bring about change. If people don't perceive it as wrong, they will continue to abuse the placards, and only the people can compel others to begin to perceive this as wrong.
However, (...) View more

I agree that anybody parking in a Disabled Space should be fined 10,000 plus have their car impounded, However I can't believe so people take there time to report people over and over with no license place number/placard number. First of all no body police this web-site so why waste your time. Also you can prove nothing. A licensed Police Officer has to catch them in the act, a picture (...) View more

My wife and I were entering the Chapel Hills Mall (in Colorado Springs) and we got out of our car, a black pickup truck had just pull into a handicap spot just about the same time. Of course I noticed that neither the driver or any of the occupants looked or seemed handicapped. They walked in before we did and the driver was a muscle bound guy and had his wife and 1 child with them. What (...) View more
There are two handicapped parking places at my kids school and they are frequently filled by people without plates or tags. The parking lot is always filled and the only other parking is a couple blocks away. I've talked to the school and they claim that they can do nothing even though I asked for them to send a reminder out to parents about parking there. I asked them to request that the (...) View more
