Regarding handicap parking, the Nov. 30 letter writer is so on point. The universal symbol for handicap is the person in the wheelchair. Universal.
Relegated to the confines of a motorized scooter, I am disgusted by what I routinely observe. Men and women, briskly entering and exiting their jacked-up one-ton pick-up trucks and SUVs is commonplace.
For me to gimp my way via my walker to the back of my van to off-load my scooter, I often have to navigate my van to an isolated part of a parking area to off-load my scooter because all of the handicap spaces are already taken. The off-load process requires my having starboard and port-side margins of my van accessible.
I am often cautioned that not all handicaps are visible. If it is that invisible, perhaps it doesn’t really exist to begin with. It is a figment of the imagination. Instead, take the long walk – to walk it off.
