Disabled Parking and You

Posted by

While I have seen many incidences of snow filled disabled parking spots in my immediate community, one must wonder why this is happening.

I have asked management at local establishments as to why this is occurring, one said to me that they did not have enough space to move snow!!! Not enough space I asked. Fortunately my look said it all and later that day I drove by the same area and noted that the area was cleared. Lesson learned – it never hurts to ask

The same applies for shopping carts in parking lots left in disabled spots. Don’t be shy and move these carts from these reserved spots.

As Occupational Therapists, we all know that the number of reserved spots and the parking surface is limited. I always wondered if those identifying / marking the areas ever tried to park a full-size van with a side deploying ramp!
