Two-Thirds of Americans Agree – Stay Out of the Handicapped Parking Zone If You Don’t Need It

A new survey reveals that 2/3 of Americans say that “able-bodied” people parking in “Handicapped” parking spaces is amongst their top driving pet peeves. Surely a hefty percentage of that 2/3 are not people who would have needed that parking space. Surely most of them are able-bodied. So this, to me, is a great sign of the expanded consciousness of Americans – a sign that we as a country are looking out for each other. I assume we always have been but when much of the news reveals the selfishness and consumerism of Americans, this is really refreshing to me.

  1. We also have a disability sticker due to my health, that we use only when needed and mostly in winter to avoid freezing my lungs with cold air. Most summers, I enjoy walking but, must carry my umbrella to avoid the sun.

  2. I hate when people park in handicapped spaces just because they feel like it…and without a handicapped sticker no less. Though I can handle parking in a non-handicapped space, I take advantage of it most of the time since it get tedious for me to walk long distances due to my back pain.

  3. Coming from an able-bodied individual, I think this should annoy more than 2/3 of people!
