I have a completely invisible leg condition. Years ago I spent a year in a wheel-chair. Now, on good days I can walk two hundred feet; on bad days no more than 20 or 30. No one can tell my condition by looking because, altho I frequently use a cane, if I am only walking a short distance it is easier to take a pain pill. Always aware that some others are worse off than me, I only use my tag when I (...) View more
Thank you, again Russell.
As far as av is concerned I think you are the one who is not so bright, if you had read my blog more closely, I mentioned the ones that are in pain. So sorry I offended you, av, but I do stand by what I said, and as far as pain I feel it everyday.
I dont see to many complaints about St.Louis, Mo but let me tell you I have seen very few handicapped persons that were able to park because "OBESE" people, with no other disability park in these spaces.
OK, obese people may have problems but when they leave their car and walk farther and faster in supermarkets,and at malls this dont cut it with me.
Most people I have observed ARE NOT (...) View more
Here's what you wrote:
"Thank you, Brain. You hit the nail on the head when you said handicapped placards should be issued to those who are iimobile. If you can not walk certain distances without the aid of crutches, braces etc, and those who have difficulty in breathing, pain when walking should be the only ones. Anyone who can walk should be thankful they can walk, and not gripe (...) View more
I have MS and the heat really REALLY bothers me so when I HAVE to go somewhere and it is hot and there are no spaces or I see seemingly 'healthy' people park in one of 'my' spots it hurts me, I have stopped and watched people who pull just in front of me and get the spot, if they bounce out, I ask what their disability is and explain my inability to walk any distance, (...)

Some people may appear okay but have a number of other reasons; an injury, an illness, a terminal illness, maybe even just a good day they can walk. Is it right for you to find out what their problem is? What if it was you and you had o lets say MD or CF and you look okay but . . . would you want someone to know your business?
Your AARP article was interesting and has merit if it can be enforced.
There is a problem of judging just who may be "handicapped". Form general appearances, I do not look like I'm handicapped, but I've had open heart surgery two times with 5 bypasses. Over 20 heart caths with several stents and I still have tremendous pain when I walk. I ususally use about 100 nitro tabs (...) View more
I happened upon this site when reading about it in the AARP bulletin, and I have to say I found it to be quite entertaining. I am not disabled, and have never parked in a handicapped spot. I was really just wondering if this site has been productive at all.... Has anyone been fined due to information on this site? Has anything been pursued? Or has this basically become a venting ground.... It (...) View more
I suggest that you do as I did today. I had yet another doctors appointment, and while there are 12 HC parking spaces, all 12 were in use. I ended up having to park at the far end of the lot, something that causes great pain to me and not wanting to take a percocet and drive, I endured. I had to pass the parked cars, and all had either valid license plates (just like mine) and hanging placards, (...) View more
When you are issued a handicapped tag it is a "disabled driver" tag. "DD" is clearly marked on the license plate. The person who owns the car is entiled to use the space if he is driving the car. If someone who is not handicapped is driving that car, they may not park in a space, but must let the handicapped person out in front of the store and park in a regular place. The (...) View more
