Letters to the Editor Aug. 05, 2011

Handicapped parking may be abused at times, but don’t leap to conclusions

In regard to George Burr’s July 29 letter (“Some who use handicapped licenses don’t seem to need them”), Mr. Burr, not all handicapped people are crippled.

Some have handicaps that aren’t visible. Some have lung and heart disease. With those diseases you cannot breathe well or walk long distances.

If someone gets out of their car without a limp, cane, crutches, etc., don’t assume they have no disability and have no right to a handicapped license.

Do not judge. I do agree with you about the abuse of these special parking places by thoughtless people.
