Brian there are 3 things to keep in mind.
1- she needs it for a possible medical problem (legit)
2- She NEEDED it (past tense) and no longer needs it and is abusing it.
3- Someone in her family needs it and she drives them and is legally entitled to use it WHEN that person is in the vehicle.
Mind you that you have every right on behalf of ALL handicapped people to begin an inquiry into this matter as a concerned citizen.
It PISSES me off to no end when people do this and no one stands up to them.
I was at a Sports Authority in Bloomingdale when i parked my truck and as i was approaching the handicap stall a lady turned in real quick almost hitting me (not really but close) and i looked at her plate and nothing. I asked her if she had a tag to park there and she said she would only be a minute and then asked me why i cared snotty like!) Okay well now i am pissed so i go back to my truck and pull out of the spot and i stop close to the rear of her vehicle and blocked her in. she had the pole and barrier in front so she was locked in!
I put on my hazards, lift my hood, and go inside to shop for my golf balls and what do you know there she is ranting and raving. (15-20 minutes went by) As i approached the truck she recognized me and was yelling and i said "Gee sorry lady but a breakdown is uncontrollable and i think i might have flooded my engine!" As a Bloomingdale finest was driving through the parking lot i flagged him over and then explained the situation. He asked me to accompany him to the rear of his vehicle and asked if i needed a tow truck smiling. I said ya know maybe it will start now. we went to the truck and low and behold it started up.
I thanked him and smiled at her while the officer asked if this was her vehicle and as she replied he busted out a ticket for her.
Its not fair to abuse that because handicap parking is not a privledge. Its a right for them!
