The city of Burlington, NC, is getting tough on people who park in Handicapped Spaces. Read about it here.
They are forming a volunteer force to enforce this single parking law, and I think its a great idea. I would take it one step further.
I would invite those with handicaps to be on the force. they could monitor the spaces and over cell phone or radio direct other enforcement staff to actually come over and write the citations. I’m certain that the people who are being affected by the jerks that take handicapped spaces would aggressively pursue the problem and help ensure they have the access they need.
You might note that if you go to the local Committee of Persons with Local Disabilities or ADA, you will find that many of the people on the committee have disabilities. Makes sense. So why not have people that enforce the parking codes come from the same group.
