Constant Handicap Parking Offenders
By an edhat subscriber
I work for a busy small business which shares a small parking lot with an even busier small business. Our parking lot has one handicap space and an adjacent blue striped loading/unloading 'space' for vehicles parked in the handicap space that need additional surface on the side. Every single day, many vehicles park unlawfully in this space. While I do my best to approach people who park unlawfully, especially in the spot that is not even a legal parking space but a loading zone, I am not able to be a parking security guard in addition to doing my job. We have a large number of elderly and disabled customers and it bothers me to no end that people are too inpatient/lazy to wait for a legal spot or find street parking and walk over. It doesn't seem reasonable or possible to call a tow company or police constantly to fix this problem. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to better monitor the lot?
