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.

You know I started reading the fraud posts and started noticing that a LOT of people are posting and saying things like "able bodied" or "doesn't appear to be diabled"... 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.

The government should have a couple of spaces designated as "disabled pull-thrus" and painted blue with the (...) View more

It is clear that we want to provide handicapped parking spots to folks who have mobility problems, whether they’re evident to others on the street or not. Also, we want those spots to be available to such people who truly need them and not abused by people who have no real need for a placard.
Rather than argue about who does or does not look like they need the parking advantage, how about (...) View more
Thanks for thinking about this , and I hope the people that do not look handicap but are , are not offended by it when someone rights them up , maybe will be a good idea to talk with them , like a funny thing (my husband does that ) telling them there situation , you will find that , they will accepted & will be more helpful to you .
I applaud the intended kindness of those that report suspected abuse of handicapped parking.
At the same time, please add my voice of concern to the many others who are handicapped but don't appear to be.
