Handicap spaces being abused (by the handicapped)

This is the first time I've ever noticed a "handicapped person" (replace with your favorite politically correct phrase of the week) abusing a handicap parking space.

I was walking into the post office when a minivan pulled into one of the handicap parking spaces. The van was placarded appropriately so I didn't think much of it.

Then a person, half the age of the driver, jumps out of the passenger side door and skips into the post office, dropping off mail and checking a PO box. Out goes this obviously not handicapped person, jumping back into the van and off they go.

Can we not ALL simply respect the spirit of the law instead of trying to grab some personal gain by searching for loopholes?

  1. and not to smart either. Why don't these Handicap Placard abusers just pull up into the fire lane so the rider gets let off directly in front of the building. If you are going to cheat then cheat!
