“Dear PoPville,

Due to a recent injury, availability of handicap parking has, unfortunately, become a special concern in my household. (Thankfully, it’s an injury that will heal in a few months.) We’ve witnessed several frustrating examples of people misusing handicap parking, but this one takes the cake: Cop car taking up the only handicap parking spot for the building. And no, this wasn’t a quick in and out – the car has been there for an extended time. There are countless other spots that this cop could park in instead, since cops don’t have to worry about parking legally – I see cops parked all the time along the wall behind our building (which is labeled “no parking”) or at the end of a block behind the legal street parking. There is just absolutely no excuse for taking up the one spot reserved for disabled parkers!! Shameful! The annoying part is that there is no one to report it to – I’m sure that a complaint to the police would fall on deaf ears.”
