The Challenges With Disabled Parking

The Challenges With Disabled Parking

One of the most coveted, but also controversial, aspects of being disabled is the ability to park in disabled (or as the larger public refers to them, "handicapped") parking spots. Here in my home state of California we have two factors impacting the availability for disabled people to park in disabled parking spots: 1) increased population density and 2) a generation of people who are simply aging (and thus acquiring disabling conditions, many times requiring the use of disabled parking). There is a third factor, that of the increased diagnosing of "invisible disabilities," a topic I will explore in this post.
