Stop Parking Scumbags



How many times have you seen a car pull into a handicap parking space, only to see a spry, very un-handicapped individual hop out and skip lithely into the establishment? Far too many. Up until now you only had three courses of action: 1. Call the police, who would most likely be too busy to catch the dirtbag; 2. Confront said vermin and risk an ass-kicking; or 3. Ignore it and silently fume. Well now there is an actual way to report these lazy bastards. www.handicappedfraud.org/ lets you report violators for investigation. Simply take down the vehicle's license number, the number on the handicapped tag(should there be one) and enter the info at the web site. The site says to leave a note telling the perp that they've been reported, but that is up to you, of course.

This has been a PSA from your friendly neighborhood Marius. Thank you.

In truth, I would have to say I can't remember the last time I saw someone who appeared to be "non-handicapped" parking in a so designated space. I don't think such spots are misused as much as they used to be. On the other hand I will never understand the "bank" of handicapp spaces in front of Lowes Home Improvement stores. There are easily at least 10 at my local store.

Unfortunately, this site is only for those abusing handicapped placards, and not the lazy bah-stardos parking illegally "for just a moment"....

It's still great that this site exists, tho.....

Unfortunately, some of the people you see blithely "skipping" to the store from the handicapped parking space may, in fact, be handicapped. My sign language teacher, who is deaf, parks there, but if you saw her you wouldn't realize she was handicapped. Also, many people, like me (though I don't have a handicapped sticker yet) have back/leg problems wherein they can't walk great distances but, again, to see them, you wouldn't realize they qualify for handicapped parking. I'm just saying that you cannot judge a book by its cover.
