GOING AFTER THE ABUSERS DOWNTOWN!
As first reported on FOX 26 news at 9 by The Insite – City parking personnel and HPD are running stings on people who are abusing handicap placards. Parking enforcement head Liliana Rambo says hundreds of people abuse the system by using the handicap displays to get out of paying for city parking meters. We went out on Dallas between Main and San Jacinto Thursday where we found 26 out of 29 cars in a 2 block area with the handicap placards displayed on the street. Rambo says many of the people use the notices simply to park closer to their jobs downtown and walk in without a hint of disability. The city is now pushing to have the placards limited to four hours at city parking meters rather than unlimited the way it is now. And now the Insite wants to know if you agree with the 4 hour limit for handicap placards?
