Being not only a disabled person and serviceman, Clyde N. Hood (letter March 17) should know better than to park where it may be “questionable” to him.
As a disabled person, I am thankful every time someone gets a ticket for anything disabled-parking related. Too many people don’t care about the needs of the disabled and many able-bodied people have unnecessary parking placards. If anything, Mr. Hood should be grateful a cop even issued a ticket. Most times, people get away with this.
I do, however, want to thank him for his service to this country. I invite him, instead of seeing the negativity of paying what he might call an “unfair” fine, to be thankful that there are people out there regulating the parking spots for the disabled.
If he really thinks about it, the parking carts were in his way, so instead of taking the time to move them, he just parked crooked. This led to the situation of someone disabled unable to park or get out of the car because, originally, carts were in your way.
In the scheme of it all I would be grateful; someone out there is protecting the rights of the disabled.
