I attend SUNY Delhi college in upstate NY.
Parking space is at a premium here on campus, and most of us have to walk 3/4 mile or more.
i routinely see this kid from NJ, about 19-20 years old with a handicapped parking permit on his entended cab pickup, yes with a toolbox, four-wheeler on the back, kc lights, and brush guard..... (...) View more
On one hand, I am continually amazed by the number of king-cab pickup trucks (some with toolboxes yet) that sport either a permanent license plate or placard indicating handicapped status. I had to give up driving both a truck and manual transmission years ago so I wonder how the disabled climb in or out of these vehicles and operate them. It is also impressive how many other vehicles bearing (...) View more
WOW! this seem's to be a hot topic on this site. people on each side of the coin are very passionate about this one so i thought i would start a new thread so we can all chime in.
I am a police officer and enforce disabled parking violations and post my tickets and arrests. Today, I checked the placard of a lady using disabled placard A5832940. She said that the placard was her son's who was disabled and she pointed to her son. I told her I had watched the boy skateboarding with his friends on the sidewalk and running back and forth with his friends for 10 to 15 (...) View more
This a continuation of the discussions and points raised in “Not all look the part” and “Yes there is abuse”. Everyone need to vent occasionally. When I posted a blog on parking lot confrontations last month I was venting about a specific problem those of us with “invisible mobility” issues can and often do face. What I didn’t add because it wasn’t really applicable to the (...) View more
I am really upset also at the fact that I could end up on this site. I have Lupus, CFS and Fibro. I can on good days walk briskly into a store but what I fail to see in these reports is, what the person looks like coming out of the store. For me my placard is used for getting me back to my car! By the time I do a little grocery shopping I am in so much pain and have no energy left, so getting (...) View more
However, I am one of those who has a placard who does not look disabled and I resent the idea that I might be reported when I use my placard. I was diagnosed in 1995 with Multiple Sclerosis. ALL of my sypmtoms are not visible when you look at me, even the times when I was 100% blind in one eye. I used my placard much more when I lived in AZ and was disabled by the heat and parking in (...) View more
Anyone here live in Ohio? There was a story about handicapped parking in the Cleveland Plain Dealer this morning, and now Joel Riley is talking about it on his radio show on WTVN radio in Columbus. He even linked this website from his blog. Check it out...
Comments: 0 Miami Dade Florida State Attorney Katherine Rundle prosecuting disabled parking Violators???02/04/08Added by:
I have a recent case, the person was arrested, of a driver using someone else's placard when the placard owner was not there going to court for an arraignment hearing tomorrow morning. I hope I will have good news to report, that being the Miami Dade State Attorney will prosecute these cases and not just dismiss the cases as is so frequently done with other criminal and traffic (...)

Just a thought. Do you think that if meter parking wasn’t free to people with permits that maybe there would be a little less fraud in areas with meters? I’ve always paid at meters or parking lots that require it. I don’t expect a financial benefit just a space that improves my ability to access the place I am going to.
