Did anyone see this?
Toronto police are claiming victory in a crackdown of motorists who illegally park in spots reserved for drivers with handicaps.

In the first week of a crackdown, police handed out 500 tickets to drivers who parked illegally in the spots.

Thirty-two vehicles were towed.

Police also seized 129 handicapped parking permits that were being misused.

This was on TV last night. Where I live, abuse of handicap permits is rampant. Handicap parking too important for those who really need it to allow cheaters to abuse the privilege.
