Seattle Toughens Law On Disabled Parking Abuse

I blogged about the problem of people without disabilities parking in disabled parking spaces a couple months ago. Well, apparently the problem isn't just ours. It's gotten so bad in Seattle that City Council members this week voted to take action.

Apparently a lot of people over there are using disabled placards that they 'inherited' when family members died or ones they obtained fraudulently.

Here's the Seattle PI story.

I have a couple friends in wheelchairs and they both complain about this. So do the rest of you notice this abuse increasing in our area or do you think it's always gone on at these levels?
