  • I think they are nice when they are there as a courtesy....but you right pregnancy is not a disability but when your getting into those last months it gets really difficult getting from point a to point b. I think if a store does it to be nice great! but i dont think it should be a state mandate like handicapped parking is.

  • IMO no and I never used one but I can see where it may be nice for some.

  • I like em....I park in them all the time at the px and commissary. its nice to not have to push the giant cart full of stuff to the back of the lot. I dont think it is intended to be a "disability" spot. I used to shop at Bloom and they had spots for parents with toddlers and such. That was also very nice

  • If your pregnancy was rough like mine was then absolutely. If you are stuck on bed-rest but need to run an errand then yes you are disabled and could really use the help. We don't necessarily need special parking spaces, just special permits signed by an OB for the people who are having a rough time with their pregnancy.

  • I think it is a VERY sweet and kind thing to do:)

  • No. Even when I was pregnant I didn't park in them. Being pregnant isn't a disability, and walking is good for most pregnant women. I'd rather see them reserve spaces for the elderly.
