Don't get me started on the motorized scooters from Medicare scam...
Sorry but your post deserves a response...

1. The doctors I know will absolutely not lie and endanger their certification by giving "anyone" a handicapped parking permit.

2. The same is true for your comment regarding emotional comfort animals.

3. I truly believe that no one in our country who is handicapped should be forced to use one of the old hand driven wheelchairs. Those who are confined to a wheelchair are truly in need. To blindly accuse those who have motorized chairs as being scammers is over the top.
