Define "truly disabled" subby.

I'm disabled enough that I have a handicap license plate and cane, and I still get heckled by people saying I "only use the cane for the parking". On one occasion, I had to call the police to stop a tow truck that some complainer convinced the manager to call. (The complainer was blocking my car in so I couldn't leave.)

Since the guy in TFA was an able-bodied public offal, I fully support turning him in for this, but don't go about promoting vigilante justice against the "fakers" whose injuries don't fit your standard of "disability".

I've had to explain to my kids on more than one occasion that the clearly able-bodied person who just parked in the handicap spot, and then spryly walked into the store, is not physically handicapped, but is actually mentally handicapped.

I can't count the number of times I have seen some assclown drive up in a huge pickup truck, park in one of the handicapped spaces, jump out, and waltz into a store.  They display the proper tag (hanging from the mirror typically) but outwardly display no sign of physical impairment.  I have always wondered if being a douche is considered a handicap.

I've only parked in a handicap space once, there were no other spots available, and I was about to have a massive bout of watery trouser chili and needed to get to a toilet ASAP.  I was in and out in 15 minutes, and returned to my car and got the hell out of there.  I was so sure I'd have been towed, publicly shamed, and marked as an inconsiderate dick... but I wasn't.

If I could have held it, I would have driven the mile to the next store or gas station before parking in a handicap spot, because I'm not disabled.

Of course, some of these people with handicap tags or plates look and act like they got them for being angry and ignorant.

Some jerk parked in a handicap spot, so this woman in a wheelchair had to wheel up this incline, and half way up her batteries gave up, and she rolled backwards into the wall. Took her to St. Elizabeth's. Sons of biatches! Good luck finding them... him... whatever. I'd like to stick around and get my hands on him myself, but I gotta take off.

I drive an old beat-up SUV so I'll park as close to cars like this as possible so that I'm still within a spot.  I could put my passenger side within inches of the drivers side door.  No one's getting in that way.  If the driver wants to mess up my car, so be it.  Hasn't happened yet, and I could use a new car anyway.

My mother has a handicapped hang-tag, and if I ever he a license I'll be eligible for the permanent handicapped plates. It thoroughly pisses both of us off to see people in handicapped spaces who do not legally have use thereof. (I've watched two college-aged kids leap out of a car illegally parked and then compliment each other on the awesome parking spot. A call to the local cops got them a nice ticket--$2,000, I think.)

When I am actually able to get my own license in a few months, I plan on getting a motorcycle so that I can park it in a handicapped spot--legally--and piss off the people who just think the "reserved" signs are just a friendly suggestion...

You realize there's no law keeping you from parking there, right?  And that those spots are fair game for anybody?  Especially those of us who hate kids, and think the people who cause more of them should be punished, not rewarded with good parking?

You know what I really hate?

The self-righteous dickbags who get their manties in a wad about other peoples' parking.  And I hate parking pigs.  There are no good guys in this story, they both should DIAF.

I'm not opposed to having SOME handicapped parking available.  But have you EVER seen all of those spaces full?  It NEVER happens.  I've seen an entire parking lot full, except for the handicapped spaces which are all empty.

How about this as a solution:  Handicapped spaces can be used for parking for up to 10 minutes for anybody, or unlimited time if you've actually got the sticker.  And the fine can be no more than double an ordinary parking ticket, these $100 and up tickets are just stupid for something that doesn't actually hurt anybody, since those spaces never really fill up.

At the very least, instead of having a set number of spaces no matter where they are, actually do a usage study based on the type of parking users, and pick an appropriate number based on real-world data.  Senior center or gerontologist office?  Lots of handicapped spaces.  Lumberyard?  Don't bother.

DarkVader: You know what I really hate?


No, but please go ahead and inform us of your irrational hatreds.

The self-righteous dickbags who get their manties in a wad about other peoples' parking.  And I hate parking pigs.  There are no good guys in this story, they both should DIAF.

Clearly you've never been in the situation where some asshole in a two-door coupe parks at the exact center of two parking spaces in a parking area that is otherwise completely full, the nearest parking space being two blocks away. In the rain.

I'm not opposed to having SOME handicapped parking available.  But have you EVER seen all of those spaces full?  It NEVER happens.  I've seen an entire parking lot full, except for the handicapped spaces which are all empty.

Ok, yes, sure. In some situations the entire parking lot could potentially be full save for two or three handicapped spots. And how rare are those situations? Excessively rare, in fact.

How about this as a solution:  Handicapped spaces can be used for parking for up to 10 minutes for anybody, or unlimited time if you've actually got the sticker.  And the fine can be no more than double an ordinary parking ticket, these $100 and up tickets are just stupid for something that doesn't actually hurt anybody, since those spaces never really fill up.

For the sake of argument, let's say you're in a parking lot and there is one handicapped spot open, and the nearest non-restricted space is half a mile away. Let's say you--who can easily walk miles on end with no ill effect--take the handicapped spot, even if only for ten minutes. An actual handicapped person arrives and cannot find a parking space. Now you're just a dick who is forcing someone who cannot walk (or, in my case, walk well) to either not run what could very well be an extremely important errand (retrieving life-saving medication, for example), or to trudge into a building in excruciating pain all because you couldn't be bothered to walk a little further. Congratulations, you're a dick. And dicks deserve extra fines in these situations.

At the very least, instead of having a set number of spaces no matter where they are, actually do a usage study based on the type of parking users, and pick an appropriate number based on real-world data.  Senior center or gerontologist office?  Lots of handicapped spaces.  Lumberyard?  Don't bother.

Because five or six reserved parking spaces is an enormous inconvenience upon you. (See above, you dick.) Next you're going to claim that home-improvement stores don't need automatic, handicapped-friendly doors. Or that handicapped-accessible restrooms are a waste of time. Fark you.

We have a local ice machine with 2 parking spots. One of them is a handicapped spot. Never seen a car or truck in it. I guess handicapped people don't party or use ice. But they do home improvements. HD has about 15 spots for them. You might see one or two being used.

Over a decade ago, I used to do that when working third shift at a grocery store.  I got a few comments, but I parked far away from the building and was gone before 8am.  In the middle of the day when the lot could get filled is a different story.  Before long the whole crew was doing it.

I have gotten strange looks in the past when I had borrowed my fil's truck and didn't park in a handicap spot, as the truck had the tag.  They seemed really confused why a not handicapped person would borrow a large truck from a handicapped person.  Hint: I was at a furniture store.

I don't give a shiat if he loses his entire income. It may have been minor, but it was an abuse of power. The jackass considered himself above the law and was an asshole when called out on it. I don't care what the guy calling him out on it was doing- this jackass was a public official abusing his powers. You don't get the right to whine that other guy was being mean to you.

Sometimes you just don't look handicapped. I have had 5 heart attacks the first being at age 35 where I had a quadruple bypass. No I was not overweight and I never smoked I was just dealt a bad genetic hand so while I do not look disabled I have a tag. That being said I seldom use the spaces unless there is nothing else because I can walk albeit a little slow. I do have an issue with people who use others tags or pay off a doctor to get the prescription written for one, and this does happen quite often.

My mother is the same way. Doesn't outwardly look disabled, just walks really slow. She has a handicapped hang-tag. I, meanwhile, am eligible for a permanent license plate (if I had a driver's license and my own vehicle). More, I actually look handicapped--it's rather hard not to when you're limping around on a cane--so I'm unlikely to be harassed about "not looking crippled," as some people around here might say.

You are absolutely right--the fraud pisses me the hell off. There's a special place in Hell for people who acquire and use the tags fraudulently.

I don't understand the two of you....

The majority of us that get irritated when we see abusers of the invalid parking spaces are irritated because people that have zero apparent defects use those slots far too often.

If you walk with a cane, or look like your gait is below ramming speed than I don't take a second glance. If however you are under 40, walk like a power walker, and are alone, we assume you are abusing.

I for one thank you for that. But to a lot of people, that handicapped spot means that the driver has a third arm sticking out of their head and is missing half a foot.

I've been using a cane for three years. I've been using a handicap license plate for six.

Under your criteria, those first three years would be "abuse" simply because I wore long pants over my leg brace, but someone with an identical injury who wore an identical brace outside their pants would be entitled to that spot.

Unless you're strip searching everyone who parks in a handicapped space, you have absolutely no farking way of knowing who has an "apparent" disability and who does not.
