Handicapped parking spots and blocked handicapped entrances
by Disgruntled driver
It may seem petty to some, but it drives me crazy to see fully able people park in designated handicapped spots!
Or worse, people who decide their time is to precious to park in the lot like everybody else. I can't believe how often I see tons of empty spots while Impatient Driver blocks the only sidewalk ramp so that they're only steps from the door.
I often point out the obvious sign and remind them of the penalty. Usually I get the "But I'll only be a minute" excuse. :-(
As if their minute is somehow more precious then everyone else's!
We have a manual wheelchair to maneouver next to the passenger side of our van, so the extra space of the handicapped parking spot is necessary to avoid having our child in the middle of the lot while we sort out getting him out of the van and into his wheelchair.
And power wheelchair users have even more need of the space and the sidewalk ramp. I wish people could just realize and be more considerate.
