Shouldn't the fact that a doctor has to fill out a form attesting to the fact that you are disabled in order to get a placard be good enough? Why should some stranger in a parking lot have more say so than a physician? The burden of proof shouldn't be on the person who looks healthy but has a placard, it should be on the one who thinks something wrong (illegal use of placard) is going (...) View more
As you know baseball tickets were sold on line this week. Handicapped tickets were sold to anyone and now are showing up on ebay.
Federal law prohibits the baseball team from asking individuals if they are disabled before selling a ticket. And individuals that sit in handicapped sections are not breaking the law.
During regular season handicapped seating tickets are released to the (...) View more
I know volunteer caregivers and relatives who transport disabled people to doctors, rehab, etc. and keep the patient's placard in their car. This is perfectly legal while helping these folks who no longer drive. I can see where it's tempting for the caregiver to grab a handicapped spot, hang the card, and run into a store.
If the disabled person dies, and the card is still valid, (...) View more
I live in Lindsay Ca. a city that does not care who parks in a handicapped zone I am the disability advocate here and everytime we call the police about someone including city workers who park there thay dont even check them out. So the disabled are left out in the cold
stop whining about it, if you know there is fraud, report it. Every 911 dispatcher will give you the "non-emergency number" (you will end up with them again anyway), ask for the number, and call the police. It is illegal to park in handicapped (ADA) parking without a valid permit.

Who are you to say that you know that they aren't disabled?? Does being "disabled" require a walker or wheelchair?? Does being "disabled" require you to LOOK like (...)
I'm retired, and pull my power chair on a small trailer because I can't afford $50,000 for a ramp-van. It takes up two parking spaces. A lot of times, I have a big problem finding parking, especially in covered garages at hospitals, etc. I need a pull through. The government should have a couple of spaces designated as "disabled pull-thrus" and painted blue with the (...) View more
The report from Ga.( 10-26-07 ) about the tag of DV--- is a Disabled Veteran tag granted to those veterans who have loss of limb or is 100% disabled. The veteran may appear not disabled, but truly is. Hope this info helps-

I am only 53 but have been handicapped since 1995. There are times that I look perfectly OK..but every step is a marathon. And when I go out I try to look my best because when you have a chronic disease, making that effort keeps you going. I have received many negative looks even though I have a handicapped license plate. But I am thankful for this site because there are so many times that I (...) View more
