John shared this parking violation he came across while at the College Station Medical Center in the other day.
The driver must of been in a hurry, because not only did they park in a disabled parking space without any disability tags, but also almost halfway in the access zone too!
Why do people park like this?
i always ask this, and always chalk it up to just laziness. But there just has to be more to it than that sometimes. It is kind of like those signs "park here again and you will be disabled" or "You took my parking space, want my disability too"!
Could these parking violators that park in ADA parking spaces to save time even handle a disability?
John added "The white truck was leaving but was parked properly." So the truck wasn't involved in this shaming.
Thanks for sharing this with The Wheels of Shame!
He also said that "there were plenty of open visitors spots just a few spaces over". So rather then walk 10 extra feet they decided to park in the ADA parking spot?
When are they going to start putting the phrase "Laziness and Stupidity are not considered disabilities" on parking signs? Doubt it would work to stop abuse, but when you see a violator you can guess which one they are. Lazy or stupid!
One would also think someone working for the Fort Worth Independent School District might be a little more educated, but Mark said "This car was parked in the same spot illegally at least two more times this week."

The manager from the Portland Area McDonalds, that is owned by JMW Enterprises, decided to fix the problem by creating a handicapped parking space. As you can see from the picture during Golden State Foods delivery the accessible parking space doesn't really meet the ADA parking guidelines for this particular McDonalds in Portland. Read what Dave wrote below. Click here to read part 1
No matter what, it seems like the convenience of Golden State Foods always prevails over accessibility needs at Jim Monroe's JMW Enterprises McDonald's. They continue to designate the only space that is closest to the accessibly entry as gsf's loading zone and continue to knowingly schedule deliveries when the store is still open. This time, they refused *me* service by taking away accessible space.
The manager in charge contends he's provided accessible space and I can no longer park where I parked last time. He claims he met accessibility needs by putting a removable stake that's 2 inches wide by 2' tall in front of a regular parking space where that SUV is parked in the picture. That's just a regular parking space. No access aisle and there was a car next to it. Even if there wasn't, there's no guarantee that there won't be a car when I get back.
It's also on a hill in the path of an incoming traffic. Not only that, gsf's driver chose to stack up a bunch of plastic pallets to restrict the accessible entrance which I've drawn in with red boxes.
So... When I told him that doesn't work, he contends I refused to use the accessible space the McDonalds in Portland provided as a reasonable accommodation... ugh... He clearly fails to realize that putting a marker that says "handicap" in a regular space is not a pass to allow gsf to park in the real accessible space.
