Video: Free Press Nails Scofflaws Who Steal Handicapped Parking Spots
The Free Press went out to find out who the people are who would block a disabled person from being able to shop at the grocery store, browse in the mall or eat at a favorite restaurant by stealing their parking parking space.
Reporters and a videographer visited shopping malls, grocery stores, pharmacy parking lots and government buildings. The Free Press team waited for apparently able-bodied drivers to park in handicap spaces and then approached, with camera rolling.
In addition, the Free Press tracked down chronic violators, people with multiple tickets for parking in spots reserved for disabled people.
Some of their stories are surprising.
