The guy at the ARCO is my real pet peeve with handicap parking. I have no issue with someone, typically elderly, who need to park close for vaild reasons. But these days, watch how many people, like that lazy POS. See how loaded his truck is which shows he does manual labor, and how he easily moves around. So he is either using somebody else's placard, or he hot his Dr. to authorize him one without any need. Too many doctors bend over for this BS. I call it VIP parking. Lazy, self-important idiots like that guy now parks right up front. Everything is such a phoney crock these days.

TRUMP supporter

Most people that do this are either stupid, lazy or fat or all 3.


Why doesn't Roberts join the police force?


Why should he? He already has a job.


The guy at the Arco station really looked handicapped to me. I would bet the card was issued to someone else and he is just using it to get a good parking spot. Also, why is it the state has regulations on how large the handicap spot must be but the rest of the parking spots are only big enough for a Smart car or VW Bug? I drive a full size truck so my thought is 'Take 2, they are small parking spots". ALL parking spots should have to the same size as a handicap spot.
