Don't forget the handicapped parking placard freebie.
I finally figured out I could be approved for a temporary (red) one after years of watching people without visible mobility disorders use those spots - they can't all have congenital heart defects. Once in front of LA Fitness after gimping a half mile across the packed parking lot with a torn ligament in my foot I saw a car peel into the handicapped spot right at the entrance and six guys jump out to play a game of pickup/league basketball - each and every one. Frequently at my Home Depot each and every one of a dozen handicapped spots are taken, yet inside the store with its miles of concrete aisles not a single person is using the "fat person's" motor cart or has even a limp - I know because whenever I go there it's never for one thing and I hit every aisle. Now with my red placard I can use those spots but they're almost always in use. The ones in front of my gym are usually used by what appear to be very fit senior citizens who I've often observed working out with more intensity than I do! So I wind up clomping across the parking lot with my foot brace and cane per usual, grateful at least that it's only temporary and I can still drive myself (by law, brace removed while driving for that purpose).
Maybe they're all borrowing grandma's placard but that's not the idea behind the placard, and it's never clear who you can call to bust and fine these people whose driver's license numbers obviously don't match up to those on the placards:
A CONFIDENT crip wouldn't be loaning his placard out.
