Handicap parking...at what point do we draw the line?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I suffer from OCD, depression and anxiety. These are technically classified as “disorders” and in some extreme cases are considered a handicap. This does not mean that I’ll willfully park in a handipcap spot. Handicap parking should be reserved for PHYSICALLY disabled people and cancer patients going through treatment. If you have a mental disability you should NOT be parking there. I just had this discussion with a coworker and they disagreed. What are your thoughts?

I do not care.

My mom has a handicap permit. She was a heart surgery patient. . She capable of walking miles.

It comes in handy when I am Black Friday shopping with her. Lol

Obviously you don't know how you have to go about getting approved for a handicapped parking permit.

I assume that a handicap parking is for someone in a wheelchair, hence, the stick figure in a wheelchair sign. There's nothing wrong with the legs of a person with mental illness(es).

If the state gives you a handicapped plackard, you can park there.  I don't make the rules.
