As a handicapped person I would like to thank the lady police officer I saw a few days ago in the Wal-Mart parking lot for going around and writing tickets for those people that were parking in the handicapped parking spots without a permit. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
It has been a long time coming, but now I think the police have finally noticed. So, to all you lazy, inconsiderate people that park in handicapped parking without a permit, or with your dead grandmother’s permit, get out your wallets. You will be paying to park there in the future.
Between January and November of last year, 19,119 tickets were written by the department. Only three were for handicapped parking violations! Those days are over, as long as the police keep watching and acting. Thanks again to Chief Gates and all the officers at Myrtle Beach Police Department. I appreciate your help.
