    My story, thru eyes of potential attorneys which will review this MVA claim. I see a few problems.

    Subj. car had no license plate, presume brand new car. Drivers are creature of habit, it’s very easy, the senior driver was confused with the new auto.

    Another concern, why are handicap parking stalls located near the front entranceway to buildings? Also why are handicap stalls, designed without steel-or concrete pilasters/ ballards in front of the stalls, when they are close to entranceways or located adj. to sitting –staging areas??

    Statewide, viewing handicap designated parking stalls, there is always a problem with the ingress/ egress, relationships to store fronts or the parking lot traffic flows. In this locale, the handicap parking was right in front of the door, just waiting for an accident to happen, plus Maj. Lane of the parking lot traffic flow.

    Remember people who a park in the handicap, are disabled-impaired, so the movement of the traffic plus the movement circulation of a storefront (Entrance), creates a lot of confusion for handicapped drivers parking in these designated areas.

    State Handicap DMV and all City planning Departments, need to evaluate and fix this broken handicap parking statewide. Handicap Parking Designations are 100% must have, but lets get real, handicap zoning needs to be in a protected areas and away from traffic flow and distant from entryways. Another issue, cars which park in these designated areas by storefronts, the cars become victims for run-a-way carts and wheel chairs, as parking next to fronts, cars act as bumper stops for run-a-ways anything!!!
