police officers are always giving tickets for the stupidest things dont they have anything better to do?
Exactly #62 This isn't too bad cos you don't actually have to pay this. If you have the disabled placard then the policeman is well outwith their rights to give you a ticket, despite whatever stupid lie they come up with to cover their corrupted backs.
well that's mainly parking lots' faults for not having enough handicapped spaces, as well as situations like this here that happened to my dad: he hadn't seen a free space in a parking garage in boston yet, and he was pretty much on the top floor. so a worker told him to go ahead and use the handicapped spaces, telling him it was ok to do so. my dad refused because he didn't like the idea, but other people HAD taken the spaces. besides, you don't know how much pain the OP may be in walking. FYL indeed. and being 59 and using this site? good for you for being up with the times! ^.^
Wow number #75. Can you say FIRST COME FIRST SERVE? My husband has four metal disks in his back and can't walk more then 40 feet with out being in pain. Yet he doesn't complain when the handicap spots are taken. Because he doesn't live in his own sheltered little world. There are other people out there that need/use those spots too. So what you don't get a spot every time? Not everyone does. If they have a handicap sticker then they are just as welcomed to those spots as your little brother is.
I'm pretty sure you can definately appeal against that. People with mental disabilities can get the cards and you cannot physically look at them to see if they're disabled.
What he is trying to say that people with certain mental disabilities can apply for and receive handicapped permits. However, if you looked at one of these people, you probably wouldn't be able to tell that they are in any way disabled. Just how you wouldn't be able to tell that the op is disabled just by looking at him.
If you have a disabled placard, is it not illegal for a police officer to fine you? that's disgraceful.
That's just awful. OP, I envy you. You get the best parking spots.
To anyone that says fight it in court... the cop will still win in the end. Most (if not all) police departments pay overtime for the officer to show up in court. So either way they win. oh and its usually 4 hrs of overtime regardless of how long they are actually in court
