I'm not trying to insult your initiative, but online petitions really won't do anything. Most people don't seem to take the internet that seriously. And there's no guarantee that the common outlook provided by an internet petition, which can be signed by anyone anywhere, actually corresponds to your local situation.
Hate to rain on your parade. Good luck man.

No no no. It's quite the opposite nowadays. I just read in the news that the banks in the UK changed a policy regarding students because of an online petition. Just yesterday.

Ive voted too although for the record in my opinion (without predjudice) the amount of parking spaces reserved for the handicapped in Britain and Ireland is vastly out of proportion with those required.I always see lots and lots of empty spaces for handicapped drivers empty even at the busiest times .Guess the situation is different in the US....Hope it improves.

Hmm. I think seeing empty handicapped spaces is evidence that the society is respecting disabled drivers, rather than a confirmation that there is an over capacity of such spaces.

Seeing an empty one provides a valuable service reminding the able bodied to be grateful, and helps to keep us courteous.

Signed it even though I am in Ohio. They seem to hand out temporary handicapped parking passes at work for just about anything.

I always park at the far end of the parking lot at work for several reasons:
1) I let the people who need the close parking spots have them.
2) Those spaces are always open and I can always park in the same spot. That way I never have to think about where my car is when I leave.
3) I don't want someone putting a ding in my car. 1994 Ford Escort wagons are classics you know!!!

Your right MR Cat...Here in Califonia they hand them out like candy and its almost impossibe to find a handicapped spot at the bigger stores and some days I have trouble walking 10 feet..Thats why I'm trying to fight it but I'm just Pi****G in the wind..I'm a nobody and the law makers wont listen to me I need somebody with a name and some clout.....
