Today I took mom for her eye dr apt, and something I have noticed before really got me thinking. Her eye dr is a huge freestanding building along with several other businesses, and the handicapped parking is not close to the doors at all. But right in front of the door are 4 spaces labeld Private parking for XXX Vascular center, violators will be towed. Just crossed my mind that if I pulled into one of those suckers and hung the handicapped pass, could I really be towed? After all, I can park at any meter in MD and hang that pass and be free and clear, don't even need to pay the meter. And how does the vascular center get these spaces, when the other Drs do not and have plenty of elderly patients? I asked the staff at the eye dr, and they said they sort of wondered about that too. I thought handicapped parking was regulated? Sort of makes me want to call the local police station and ask about this. Has anyone else had this happen? Any thoughts? BTW my DD goes to this vascular center at 31, and she is much more able to trot across the parking lot than my 89 YO rollator bound mother, or the wheelchair bound I see in the eye drs! BTW these spaces used to be handicapped a few years ago.
