    Why not make these handicap parking stickers good for only a year instead of lifetime? WHY NOT have a toll free number to call in these despicable people who abuse the system - fine them a considerable amount... since they are robbing the general public of a valuable service.

    Illegal Disabled placard users are despicable.
    But we must be careful not to become a vigillante force. Things are not always as they appear to be.
    I am a disabled driver whose disability is not immediately apparent. Just because you don't see a limp doesn't mean the disabled parking spot is being used improperly.
    Family members see how often disabled spots are filled, so they are less apt to misuse them without the disabled present.
    If in doubt, call the cops. This helps them fulfill one of their roles. Expired, counterfeit, or misused hangtags are easy to identify; they can be removed from circulation; and, the fine is a revenue raiser.
