I have had a hang tag from Forida since 2005, and despite what others have said here, Florida DOES issue a "card" with the handicapped card. It looks like a Florida tag registration but references the serial number of the handicapped tag. It is supposed to be on your person when using handicapped parking spaces.

My handicap is the short distance I can walk. If the parking spot is near an office with little walking, I will "hoof" it and leave the handicapped space for someone who may need it more than I.

If it is a big box store, I will use the handicapped space and my electric mobilty scooter.

By the way, I would glady trade my handcapped "privilege", placard, and mobility scooter for a pair of healthly legs!! Any takers?

Definitely. I can pull myself into my truck as I do have the benefit of upper arm strength. It's the legs that don't work as well anymore.

Hmm, the guy that labored to tell the class how he was offended by being called "handicapped" believed the story. I use disabled or differently abled when spaking to or about others. I never thought to check because of the sincerity of his comments.

I have seen folks who have the blue card because of their spouse use the handicapped parking without their spouse. I have no problem in telling them that they can't do it. One lady whose husband was handicapped kept parking in a slot at work using his card. Several of us told her she shouldn't do it. She totally ignored us. A call was made and she was fined.

I witnessed a lady yell at a young Mexican kid in a low rider as he pulled into a handicapped slot at a Swap Meet that she had better see him on crutches when he gets out of his car. He said nothing until his buddy brought the wheel chair around to him and as he wheeled by her he said politely I'm sorry, using crutches are not possible since I lost both legs.
I would bet she never made a snap judgement again.

Here in TC, TX I saw a young person pull into a handicap parking spot, jump out of the car and trot into the store. I walked in and asked to speak to the manager and asked the manager to call the police, explaining what I saw. You are going to be astounded by the answer:

He told me that Wiengarten owns the parking lot and they do not want stores to call the police for parking violations, that it was up to the police to patrol the area and determine violations themselves.

I agree that disabilities are not always visible.
