DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS?
Let me just say this...just because you have this on your license plate does NOT mean you have the right to park in a spot when you DO NOT have the person with you that is requiring you to have that symbol on the license plate.
Just because you have the plate on your car doesn’t give you the right to drive like an a$$hole either. It gives you the right to get a space closer so you don’t injure yourself, or have to walk or travel in your wheelchair for a far distance. But it does not mean that you have the right to be stupid and drive like a nut.
I hate when people misuse the plate. If you need it fine, use it. I understand. But come on, there are people out there that really need it.
Yes I have it on my car for Daniel. He is in a wheelchair yes, and believe me there are times when I get looks from people because they don’t understand. Do I use it all the time? NO, when its nicer out I will park in the normal spots however far it might be, because I KNOW that there is some who is more needing of that spot than me. If its crappy out then yes, we use it. If I am alone with Daniel and going shopping for many things, YES I use it. But if I pull up at the same time someone else is and they are older and by themselves and appear to need it, I give that space up.
DO NOT PARK THERE IF THE PERSON YOU WHO IS HANDICAPPED IS NOT WITH YOU!!
For the people who don’t know what this is, it is a ramp built into the curb of the sidewalk so people who are in wheelchairs can get up the step. Otherwise, generally they can’t and they are stuck...
So calling all dumbasses....STOP PARKING YOUR CAR in front of it.
Even for those dropping someone off in a wheelchair and you have that special plate. It does NOT mean for you to park there and cover it...there are other people in wheelchairs and walkers BESIDES YOU. You are NOT the only one in the world! PULL UP....DO NOT BLOCK THE WALK WAY.
Ok I’m done. That was my rant for the day. Sheesh, I guess the little thins lately put me over the edge. But come on man, lets use common sense here, do the right things and don’t abuse your rights.
And to those who don’t heed my words? Well then...
