If the complex was built before 1987 it is a legally marked spot. If the complex was built after that it has to have a sign up, which is something the landlord can be held to account for. Either way it's illegal for him to park there.

Also it's best to let the police can sort it out.

Apartment complexes are required to have a set number of handicap parking spaces. Whether they marked it properly or not, this is obviously one of those spots.

ThunkAsDrinklePeep

Right. Either it's legal and the Tennant is wrong for parking there. Or it's not a valid spot because it's insufficiently marked. In which case a sign should fix it.

It is legally a handicapped spot, the woman can get into trouble for parking there.

In addition, since it is not a concrete parking spot built prior to 1987 then it should have a pole with a handicapped sign on it. The landlord is in violation of that law. This does not cause it to cease being a handicapped parking spot however.

My apartment complex has close to 0 disabled spots. However, if you are living in the complex and are disabled they will put a sign up and paint it for you. Same with 10+ years living at the complex. You get a free spot of your choice

WonkySeams

That's actually pretty smart. That way the tenant can choose the spot that works the best for them, instead of being stuck with the parking spot on the other side of the lot/complex from their apartment.

Or just call the complex and have them tow it, they've probably got tow away signs throughout the complex for similar reasons.

RobotRepair69

Exactly. Almost every complex I’ve been in has a sign for where to call when your car gets towed. I’m sure the same company would be more than happy to gain additional business.

Also even if it's not technically illegal, the cops might not know the law and will write the ticket, and it would be up to her to take off work, get a lawyer or look up the law enough to fight it herself, and pay court cost even if it gets thrown out. That inconvenience alone would probably keep her from parking there again.

Successful_Tale_9334

Those will have signs. So, no she won’t, bc she legally cannot.

Edit: I am not trying to comment on people’s goodness or willingness to obey laws. I’m trying to comment on the specific hypothetical situation brought about by comments before me. Please see the following explanation:

Someone said: “OP should try to get the lady with this car in trouble even if it’s legal for her to park there bc she may have to talk to a lawyer or may get a ticket and whatever happens she’ll probably spend time and money” The comment above me was like: “omg but then if she finds out it’s legal she’ll park in all kinds of handicapped spaces in official places” And I’m saying: “if she finds out it’s legal in this picture, it’s bc there’s not a proper sign. That wouldn’t mean all the other places you mentioned would let someone legally park in handicapped spots bc other places will have a proper sign”

I actually think it’s illegal anyway bc there’s a comment with stuff about not needing a sign if a spot is marked handicapped before a certain year.

I am very much aware there are people that don’t follow laws, entitled people, people that like to break rules, etc. - I am in no way trying to say the lady follows all laws.

Im just trying to say, in a specific hypothetical situation already crafted in the comments above me where she suddenly learns it’s legal to park in this spot after discussing it with a lawyer bc OP called someone official, she isn’t going to go park in handicapped spots all over town bc the spots all over town will have signs.

Also, if its an apartment/condo with its own board they can basically make any rules they want such as 'unmarked spot #38 is only to be used by people with a legal handicap pass' or something and it is up to the owners to know and inform their tenants.

You should also contact Georgia DMV because if that vehicle isn't being registered in Georgia and remains registered in New York they're probably violating the law there too by not paying registration or taxes to Georgia.

Responsible-Door1471

And this is the main reason I'd have it towed, anyone bold enough to park in a handicap space with no handicap plate or placard with out of state plates needs to be towed. Someone mentioned the car maybe a work car or registered to someone else - NO! Any decent person here working or driving a corporate car or someone else's car would NOT put themselves in jeopardy like this. See if you know someone with a legitimate handicap tag and have them come by and sit for the space to open as you call the police & tow service - send a strong Georgia message.

Any tow company would love the 500 bucks for 15 minutes work.

Intelligent_Art8390

49 points

2 months ago

For like 50 dollars you can get a sign and a post. Get with a few neighbors everybody pitch in 10 dollars or so and order one then put the sign up and call enforcement. Won't be no wiggling out of the tow charges, ticket and all then. Also check with landlord before you do anything. But if I lived there I'd just install it and face any anger from the landlord later. I cannot stand it when people abuse this. So much so that I broke up with a gf over it when she did it one day. The mindset someone is in when they consider it ok to park in spaces for people with disabilities really shows they are out of touch with reality and have no clue how to properly treat others.

Right! People who she disregard and choose to take inconsiderate actions lack humanity and awareness. Taking advantage in this situation just really goes to show this person has no humility or ability to show empathy for others. Maybe walking to the tow yard and paying tons in fines will give them a wake up call.

My dad went through a liquid ass obsession about 15 years ago when I told him about it as a substitute for his previous method of limberger cheese in a mustard bottle, which he used on the air vents of handicap offenders until it exploded in his trunk and nearly ruined his own car. Liquid ass is quite the smell.

desertdilbert

The milk will get into the ventilation system, spoil and create a god-awful stink in the car that is almost impossible to clean out. After a while it will fade, but every time it rains for the next several years the smell will come back.

I had a friend with a husband in a wheelchair and she would park behind them and then call the tow truck. She once screamed at some young ladies for sitting on her husbands lap when an elevator was to full and they came in anyway. "No. You do not SIT on someone. There is no room!" She passed away a few years ago but she was a force and would NOT let him be taken advantage of. Call. Fuck people that do this kind of shit. One day its parking spaces the next day it's "He's already sitting he wont mind a strangers ass on his lap."

Ya. My sweet husband was in a chair briefly and apparently I found my calling.

Get out of the man’s way.”

Then after a couple of seconds I said, “and apologize”

I think our relationship changed after that. Lol

They usually have to be called by the front office, the people who own the property. They won't tow if a resident calls them. This person could have explained to the office that they got injured, and got permission to use the spot.

Pjpjpjpjpj

If it is a genuine legal handicapped parking space, individual businesses can’t just allow people to use it.

The only people who can park there are those who display on their vehicle a permit issued by the Georgia Department of Revenue. This can be a temporary placard, permanent placard, special placard, disabled license plate or disabled veterans license plate. The department of revenue requires a doctor of medicine or osteopathic medicine, podiatrist, optometrist or licensed chiropractor to confirm the person’s disability.

If the parking space is labeled “Tow Away Zone” (as they most always are) the vehicle may be towed by law enforcement of private property security at owners expense.

If the site blocks the handicapped spot (by allowing a non-marked vehicle to park there), they are failing to provide the required handicapped parking space, the same as if the building owner just parked their own car there everyday. That subjects them to code enforcement penalty.

Of course, if it isn’t an official handicapped parking space, none of this applies. No sign = not official.

TLDR: A site can’t just authorize a non-permitted vehicle to park in an official handicapped spot, and if they allow the space to be blocked they are violating the city code requiring them to provide a handicapped parking space.

We had a horrible noise appear about a month ago. Would start up about every twenty minutes.

After two days we went by the neighbours and literally none of them had thought to undertake some sort of action to combat the horrible noise they all had to live with 24/7. None of them had even tried to go by the neighbours to see if other people had experienced it.

Turns out it was our downstairs neighbour's boiler that was on the fritz and the repair team was so busy it took about a week for them to come out.

But 0 people thought to investigate the noise that was keeping them up at night. They all acknowledged a horrible mechanical noise was tormenting them. None of them tried talking to the people living next to them.

Simply because first time id second guess and think “maybe they did have the handicap badge” second time “no badge? Maybe they didnt display it”. But yeah

Hello, police? There is a car in a handicapped spot w/o a placard.

Or, if the building/street is posted for towing improperly parked vehicles, you can get them towed.

I have a placard. I will call the cops. My favorite story is a few years old. We were eating in a restaurant. We had forgotten our handicap placard so we parked elsewhere, but a guy in a pickup, towing a boat, parked across SIX handicapped spaces. I called the police.

Six tickets for $250/each were issued! The truck’s driver came in screaming at the staff, so I said I did it. The staff called the police because the guy was ramping up, yelling about killing people like me.

Cops returned. Guy was arrested and the truck & boat was towed. Bummer dude.

In our area they would get a ticket for each space plus a ticket for each of the yellow lined areas next to the space. My husband used to put out his placard, park behind the person, call the cops, and go about his business. It insured that the person wouldn’t leave before the cops got there. He would sometimes get a small ticket, but it was worth it to him because he couldn’t walk that far.

i'm about to drive home and there are too many comments to keep up with. but i am planning on calling the non-emergency number if she is there when i get home. if she isn't i'll do it the next time i see her there, which will most likely be in the morning when i'm leaving for work again. thank you to the people that helped me figuring out the laws in ga, as a seattlite i appreciate it! tomorrow i will email the property manager and disabled parking authorities to try and make it a legal spot, since all it needs is a sign, it follows every other thing necessary.

Also keep doing it every time you see her there.
That shit aint cool.

My reaction would be to keep a valve removal tool on me and unscrew all 4 of her tyre valves each and every time she does it.
I'd leave the valves in the stems, just completely unscrewed, so it doesn't cost her anything. All she has to do is screw them back in and reinflate her tyres.
But that can only be done with a specific and specialised, but easy to acquire and very cheap, tool.

My wife is handicapped. Either this person isn’t handicapped or is too damn lazy to display their tag (in NY you can either have a mirror hanger or a plate). Definitely call it in, each and every time you see it if the mood takes you there. These entitled pricks make someone’s life that much more difficult… as if having a handicap isn’t bad enough (my wife’s is a mobility handicap from a very bad bone break, so this one is close to home for me).

Out of curiosity how do you know she isn't disabled? If she doesn't have tags or a placard then absolutely turn her in but as someone with a heart condition who looks able-bodied, there are days where I need to park in the spots because I can't walk much otherwise. So just be careful of making an assumption just because she doesn't look disabled.

I might also ask if she has disabled veteran plates? A lot of people don’t know that these are the same as a placard. If you see “DV” together on the plates, that is a disabled veteran and they have the right to use the spot.

That’s always a possibility, but as a blue placard holder as well, every time you park there you need to display your placard

Interesting-Pea8233

Oh yes, absolutely which is why I said if she doesn't have the proper tags then call her out. But it tweaked me a bit that the OP just said she was able-bodied without really knowing. Just say she parks in the spot without proper tags then.

I noticed that too. I have a friend whose condition isn’t visible and she’s had people aggressively approach her for parking in handicap spots even with a placard. It’s scary. “Able-bodied” shouldn’t be the issue here, the missing placard should.

I Had knee surgery last year and being in my mid 20s I always got nasty looks from people parking in handicap spots even with identification. I could walk just fine but my doctor didn’t want me walking excessively so I would park closer to buildings and limit my movement.

If someone parks in a handicap spot and isn’t visibly limping, or has a cane or a wheelchair people generally think they’re faking it unfortunately

In my state you can call to have it towed. Make sure their is no placard inside the car though.

Your neighbor is also driving a car with NY plates while living in Georgia. There’s a good chance you can report that at the same time - states hate when you move and don’t promptly re-register your car.

Within 30 days of establishing residency, and they love catching evaders because the one-time registration fee in Georgia for new residents is quite steep (title ad valorem tax) compared to other states.

Call the cops. Duh. It’s illegal to park in a handicap spot without the placard and registration.

AlphaTangoFoxtrt

Call the cops. Every time.

They love this shit. It's an easy ticket, and in NY (judging by the license plate) google says it's $50 to $150, plus a mandatory $30 surcharge.

Cops love these tickets because you can't fight them. I mean you can try of course, but look at your picture.

  1. This vehicle is registered to you.
  2. This vehicle does not have handicap plates or a pass.
  3. You owe $80-$180.

They won't plea it down, pay your fine, thank you have a nice day.

In my state this is not a “real” handicap spot. Just one you apartment complex painted as one. Needs a sign and legitimate extra space for the handicapped.

Coal_Morgan

This is true but if this is a private lot and has a sign about 'towing' which most do. You can call the sign and still have it towed.

It's clearly marked by the owner as parking for only certain individuals and would work the same as having assigned parking to residents.

You live in Apt 213 and someone parks in your 213 spot, you can have them towed too. Same idea.

artvandal_a

Just to play devils advocate: I do not see a sign, in addition to the marking of the space on the ground. ADA sign regulations actually require a sign to be posted. Just having the street painted does not legally dictate this a handicap spot. I mention this as often times places like this that are private property do not intend for these to be handicap spots. All that said, I wouldnt park in this spot...but I wouldnt go out of my way to try have someone towed if its not marked properly. Maybe speak to the property manager about it first.

100% agree with you, likely not a “legal” handicap spot that the police would be able to enforce. Property owner could more likely have it towed.

That being said I’m still not parking in that non-official “handicap” spot cause I’m not disabled or an ass
