As a handicapped person I am particularly aware of the misuse of handicap parking service.
Handicap spaces are wider than the ordinary parking space. This extra room is necessary if one must load or unload a wheelchair.
If no such space is available one must find two adjoining spaces and there is no guarantee that the adjoining space will be empty when it is time to reload the wheel chair.
Also, just because you have a handicap logo in your window doesn’t mean you are entitled to use a handicap space. Only if the handicapped person will be getting in or out of the vehicle are you entitled to use it.
It is also helpful if cars that park next to the handicap vehicle don’t overcrowd too closely.
The last time we used a handicap space the car parked next to us was over the line and we didn’t have room enough to load the chair.
The handicap parking is much appreciated by those of us who much use it and we appreciate your respect for this convenience.
