Around 80 people in Philadelphia are ticketed for illegally parking in a handicapped parking spots, blocking access to a handicap ramps or ignoring handicap parking signs. To say the least, it is a huge burden for the disabled.
The CBS 3 I-Team decided to investigate this burden by staking out high traffic areas waiting for someone to park in a spot marked with an ADA parking sign. The team spotted and approached violators and they were not welcomed with open arms to say the least.
During their investigation they even caught the Philadelphia Parking Authority illegally parked in a handicapped loading zone, blocking the accessibility ramp.
Well it seems that civilians aren’t the only one parking in handicapped marked spots but so are the parking authority hired to enforce them.
