Handicapped Parking is for the Handicapped Only

When I was younger I used to think that is was no big deal,  parking in a handicapped spot at the mall or shopping center. Heck, they have to many of those spots anyway, right?

Well, my thoughts changed ‘Big Time’ when my mother was stricken with cancer. That’s when I really started to notice just how many people there were, who needed those spaces close to the stores.

There are people who’s medical problems are not always visibly apparent. They don’t have to have crutches, or be bound to a wheelchair. People with COPD, Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Lyme Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), Crohn’s Disease, Cystic Fibrosis, or a host of many others.

Do not park in a handicapped spot if you are not handicapped! Does it get any planer than that? In fact, park as far away as you can as you probably need the exercise anyway.

And when you do see someone who is OBVIOUSLY NOT handicapped… remember this video!
