Truck and car came together. Husband and wife both obviously handicap both have proper registered vehicles. Not good parking but she didn't want to take up two spots. Two of the nicest elderly people you could meet. NOT IDIOTS.

If a handicapped vehicle with a ramp came and couldn't use their ramp because the car was in the space to do so? Designated parking spots are to be used, not make your own spot because you don't want to use a spot? No sense you make.

Someone should have parked in the other handicapped space so close that they couldn't open the door.

Two of the nicest people or not, they are idiots for parking like that when it's not a parking spot!!

I saw a big money Porsche do that one day. The way he scooted into the store I think he was afraid his hair was going to get wet. But no legal cars were parked there at the time.

I have a good comment. You all know how frustrating it is to see people with a handicap permit park in a space then walk unimpeded to the door. I have a close acquaintance guilty of exactly that. Recently I learned the tag had expired and she received a ticket for parking "illegally". Busted!

It's just people these days are so inconsiderate. Took my 83 yo mother to SSU graduation yesterday, had handicap permit, saw at least 8 spots where people parked without handicap tags or permits. So sad. My mother was out of breath getting to event.

Some people have heart or breathing condition. That can't be seen from the exterior.

No, not really. All disabilities cannot be 'seen' and besides, one needs to have a doctor sign a form verifying one is disabled. They don't give out tags like they're candy.

I took the picture as I was trying to find a parking place to open our handicapped van. What happens more often than not is that people park partially into the striped area, still not allowing room for the ramp to deploy and the wheelchair to turn at the base of the ramp. Unless you have to navigate life with this particular set of constraints, it probably doesn't enter into your thinking at all, but there are signs in place that tell people to not park there. Even at WalMart now there are clearly marked "Van Only" spots - next time you go there check and see if there aren't regular cars parked in the one or two spots reserved for handicapped vans. It is frustrating, to say the least.
