Oh my God. I'm so sorry that happened to you. The nerve of some people. At least you know the second time they yelled at you... it's because they knew they looked stupid the first time.

Thats terrible! My grandma has a prosthetic leg and people always stare and point. After a while you just get used to it and brush it off. But I wouldn't worry about it, they should be more understanding. Hope all goes well

it's for the handicapped person to be closer to his goal. imagine someone with a wheelchair trying to cross the entire parking lot, which is mostly fairly large. the people that are entitled to that spot have difficulties and those spots were made to help them and make it easier for them

Also, some handicapped parking spots are wider to allow for wheelchair loading and unloading. Some vans have side-mounted lifts which wouldn't be accessible if the van was sandwiched tightly between two cars.

How can you not "get" them? They're there so that people with disabilities can have a closer parking space and don't have to walk the entire length of the car park and wider accommodate any aids they may need such as wheel chairs, crutches or service animals...... This really is a common sense thing

I am glad that you pointed out that not all handicaps are visible. Although my son has autism, which is special needs, he has a handicap placard as well. he is unaware of safety even though we continually teach him, and we always have his hand. But. the pass keeps us from having a longer walk which could cause him to dart because of interest in cars, you know? His issue isn't seen either. We too have gotten pretty disgusted looks and side comments.
