Do Not Park Here

Here we are in the midst of the holiday season.

You know what it’s like trying to find a place to park. You ride around and around. The only parking space that’s available is the handicap space. It’s so cold, you know what you have to get and you’re only going to be a minute or so. So why not park there? Because it’s illegal and very wrong on so many levels.

These spaces are reserved for people that have a serious medical condition that prohibits them from walking to the door from a longer distance away.

It’s also against the law. If you park there and you’re not handicapped, you can face some very expensive fines, which in my opinion, you deserve. According to the New York State D.M.V. website, “these fines are:

  • $50 to $75 for a first offense.
  • $75 to 150 for a second offense.

The locality can add to the amount of these fines. The law also allows police officers to tow and store illegally-parked vehicles. ”

So my advice to you is, if you’re not disabled or handicapped and are perfectly healthy, do not park in those spaces. Just find a spot elsewhere in the lot, besides the exercise and fresh air will do you good.
