The Daily News ran an article “No good excuse for taking disabled parking spots”. Call it what you want but it isn’t a sting as there was no set up involved. All the Glendale PD had to do was wait for people to just park in the handicapped spots and nab folks with out the right stickers. Sweet. There isn’t enough enforcement. My applause to Glendale PD for enforcing this law.
The law ought to make the fine steep, say $500 or more and include automatic booting or towing with impound. Draconian? Maybe, but let me have my self righteous moment here. I’m not disabled but have friends who are. Even older folks without handicaps who have difficulties moving about deserve the closer parking. I may not be as able as I used to be and waiting to be old enough for the knee replacements, but I still park at the far side of parking lots. I do it not because I want to prevent door dings. I do it to give the less mobile a shot at close parking. (If you saw my cars you’d know I’m about 2 dings short of beater status, but I digress).
The pic is of my most
favorite flagrant Handicap Cheat in all of Monrovia. She is barely 30 and darts quickly in and out of stores. Always. Never seen her with a kid so that lame excuse is gone. I would love for MPD parking to finally nab her.
Last request. CHP has a CHEATERS for reporting out of state cars not registered timely, why not put one up for Handicap Cheats?
