The Chron on Disabled Parking Abuse

Posted by novometro on March 26, 2007

A front-page article in Monday’s Chronicle about the proliferation of disabled placards in California fails to mention that the problem of bogus placards is set to grow worse. This from the DMV: “Before this year any physician, surgeon, chiropractor or optometrist could authorize disabled placards.  A new law that went into effect at the beginning of this year also allows any physician’s assistant, nurse practitioner, or certified nurse midwife to authorize the placards.” 

The article notes that in some parts of downtown Oakland more than half of the parked cars have disabled placards.
