I know this may sound minor compared to some crimes we have going on here but this has also became a very big issue and concern to many residents of our town and that is people parking in handicap places or also NON-Parking spaces at local businesses around town....I've started hearing on the scanner that some places have been calling these people in for parking illegally but when the police reply they act like they "blow it off". I'm sick of people parking in places where it makes it harder on everyone else to get through the parking lot, or backing out...or taking young people that can get around just fine parking in handicaped spots that real disabled people need and use and when they pull up to a business all the handicapped spots are taken b/c of these inconsiderate people. The worst places are Donut shop, Walmart, Hays, and Dollar General that I seem to notice the most of. but i do happen to drive around and notice many others at local businesses and even GOVERNMENT/LAW offices around the dumb are these people..........
Anyone else think they should enforce this more around Caruthersville and local areas?

Here's the answer to this. No handicapped lic plate or placard hanging from the rearview mirror.......$500 fine. City gets $300, officer writing ticket $100 and $100 goes to place of business to help make more accessable handicap ramps etc.

that would great....but the only reason that it cant happen is that the parking lot is considered private property....and the police cant write any type of ticket on it....seem like ppl just cant read signs anymore

That's why they all have that green air freshener hanging from their rear view mirror.

Yes the police can write tickets in parking lots for handicap parking as I is a legal requirement to provide the handicap parking. The problem is the cop would have to get off his lazy ass and get out of his car. What I have noticed when in Caruthersville is that the most common handicap is being a fat black woman.
