Handicapped parker peeved

Published 1:00 am Sunday, January 8, 2012

This is about handicapped parking. I have not written to the paper before, but the people in this town have no respect for the handicapped and designated parking spaces.

I have a handicapped sticker and a wheelchair. Going to Walmart or Corner Market, or even Piggly Wiggly and paying the gas people, I see people who don’t need the handicapped space park there. Once I saw three young girls who parked in a handicapped space and got out laughing and running into the store.

Why do the police not give tickets to owners of cars who are not supposed to be parked in a handicapped space? Instead, you see the police in parking lots talking to each other, or on their cell phones. They should give tickets for parking in the wrong places.
