During my entire pregnancy, my legs and feet were completely swollen which made it extremely hard and painful to walk. Not saying that I was not in the wrong for parking there, but I parked in a handicap spot at Walmart, to run in for 2 Min. The man sees me waddling and that my feet are clearly swollen and proceeds to give me a ticket.
No placard, no parking. Waddling does not count. Thats the law. Get a red card if you have to. Go hire a ticket lawyer.

I agree with Mr. Bain. Next time get a handicap placard.
Peace be with you, and may love guide you.
As empathetic as I am to your predicament, the law is clear. You have to apply for and be given a handicap placard and pregnancy will almost never qualify you.
