Q&A - Handicapped Parking Abuse
I have driven commercially for almost 30 years and I'm (others as well) getting tired of seeing persons parking in handicap spots then reaching into the glove box or other spot to hang a permit in the window and then get out of their car/truck (with no apparent disability) and walk in to the store or mall.
I was in a car accident in 2007 were I was hit by a car failing to stop at a stop sign. As a result I have permanent nerve damage in my left leg. I feel that I'm still capable of walking so I don't need a permit , even thought my Doctor said I qualify for one.
To see people abuse this privilege (and this is a privilege, not a right) upsets a lot of people. We need to know where and who to contact to forward the licence and permit # of the offender. Calling a number that only operates Monday to Friday 9:00- 5:00 does not work for those of us that work from 6:00 to 6:00 so a website or e-mail works better for us.
Thanks for your consideration and I await your response.
