    Not sure where to post this.... I’m not ranting or being mean, I’m just curious....

    What handicap do you have that you need a handicap space when you are a truck driver? How did you pass the physical?

    Some are in wheelchairs.
    Some are on crutches.
    Some have breathing problems.
    Some are missing a limb.
    I've met two with both legs missing and had artificial legs.

    Some drivers take their handicapped spouses with them. The spouse brings their blue placard with them, prominently displayed in the windshield, and just like that, you are legal in the handicapped parking areas.

    It gets abused just like the folks in cars that have them. Both types seem to have a lot of overweight people involved.

    I’d have to give any poor soul driving for CRE, handicapped status.
