Parking can be in short supply, especially in Sacramento. This has led to abuse of the handicap parking placards.
For Yolanda Powell, parking near her work is crucial because she can’t walk for long.
“…the arthritis that’s in my knees. Sometimes I couldn’t make it because the pain was really bad,” said Powell.
But people who are not handicapped are taking the precious few spots allotted and breaking the law. They’re able to park for free for as long as they want, even at one-hour meters.
CBS13 has learned it’s becoming easier to get the placards, causing some to fall into the wrong hands.
What’s changed about the rules, and what can you do if you suspect someone’s violating the law? CBS13 is getting answers tonight at ten.
