When you go to the shopping mall to do your holiday shopping, chances are you that are not paying attention to the number of cars in the spaces designated for handicapped parking. It may not seem strange that these spaces are always occupied. After all, the holiday season brings everyone to the mall, right?
However, this may be a hardship to the disabled. According to a recent disabilityscoop.com report, there is a growing trend of people illegally parking in these spots. Some drivers are taking advantage of placards that have not been retired (either because the person to whom it was issued has since passed away or no longer drives).
