  • No! I actually have disabilities and still won't use them. There are people that truly need those spots... and remember, there are people with hidden disabilities that use them as well:)

  • NO! Never have, never will. If you get a ticket, you deserve it.

  • Good Lord, no! And I hate people who have handicap tags hanging from their rear-view mirror and you see them get out of the car and they are CLEARLY not handicap - they are using someone's car or tag. It is so not nice.

  • You best not do that in the town where I live. They will write you a big ole ticket with a hefty fine attached. They even have special civilian patrollers who watch for nothing but non-handicaps parking in handicap spots. Not a good idea here!!

  • I have NEVER parked in a HANDICAPPED spot. It is so wrong and so unfair to a handicapped person. Anyone who does should get a big fat ticket! I would tell on them...if I saw a car in one of the spots,I would notify the store's manager or the police. And YES, they should be towed!

  • It's 'handicapped' and no, I haven't parked in a handicapped parking spot because they are there for those with disabilities who need them. My brother is one of them, so yes, I think it's fair. If you ended up disabled or had someone close to you who was, you would understand better.

  • No, I have never parked in a handicapped zone or spot, and I have a handicapped sticker... I just see no point in using it.

  • I park very far away from the store entrance on purpose in parking is good exercise to walk. It would really piss me off to see a healthy person who can walk parking in a handicapped spot. The pigs.
