Handicapped tag abuse

There is no chapter or verse. A disabled person can use his placard in any car that he drives or rides in, in any state and most countries. Amen! If you are not disabled you should/do not have a placard to use and if you use some one else's you are in violation. If you have a disabled person in your vehicle and they have a placard they may use it in any vehicle when parking.

Hanging placards are not registered to a vehicle, they are registered to a person.

You also may not use a blue spot to drop someone off, to wait for someone etc. unless you have a placard legally displayed. No one can park in blue hash marks even with a placard, that is so a vehicle with placards can park in the legal spot and have room to unload a wheelchair.

You may not park, stand, or stop in a red zone, we will ask you to move and if you don't we write a ticket. Having a engine running means you are standing, if in blue we write especially if you do not have a placard.

In front of every parking lot there will be a standardized blue sign posted which states the parking lot is in compliance with ADA .... and so forth.

Twenty bucks says the Pom is not a licensed service dog!! Ever see a Pom open a door? The service dog vests are easily got on line even in Pom size. In Ca lots of service dog abuses!!

Service animals aren't limited to the blind. Some are for the hearing impaired. Some can sense when their owner is about to have a seizure. Read here.

You can say what you want, those of us that cannot walk more than 100 ft or so say you can keep your beliefs to your self. If we cannot find a close parking space it becomes a real problem, the rest of you can continue to do what you do best.

Being 100% able bodied is a gift and one that is fragile and fleeting. Anyone can become disabled or handicapped at any time. Perhaps we should photograph everyone - give them a small # tattoo on their arm - a photo ID - and papers to carry. This can be done at birth and updated every 5 years or when you move. By doing it this way we will be sure all the disabled and future disabled are labeled, catalogued and visibly marked. Enforcers will have a tattoo on their forehead so they are known by all and all will obey their demand to "Show me your papers."

I agree whole hardely!! The handicapped parking system is abused as well as the service dog system. In my state an estimated 50 to 60 percent of the service dogs are not certified! Let's not start another argument on this but the problem has many restaurant owners not allowing any dogs in!! You can't get a fake disabled tag legally on line but anybody can get a fake service dog vest for there pooch!!

Wasn't really trying to propose to much big brother stuff. Guess I am just upset about the people that we know abuse it when others need the parking spaces. I am sad to admit my MIL is one. Obviously the honor system isn't working.

I agree with you 100%. I am a disabled veteran with a service dog and I see people all the time that claim there dog is a service dog but aren't. The funny thing is there is no federal standard for a service dog certification and ID required for the dog but you can buy fake ones, heck in AZ vest are not even mandatory. I don't use my handicapped parking everyday only on the days I really need it because so many people abuse it. But looking at me on a good day you could not tell I was disabled, then when I list my replacement parts, nerve damage, and other issues cause from my many deployments people understand. I do wish the government would make an service dog ID mandatory through them, that had to be renewed every year. I hate when I am using my cane or walker and can't find a handicapped spot because some else is in it that does not have a valid permit! Rant over.....
