I live in NC and I've been diagnosed disabled. The maintenance man of the apartment complex I live in denied me access to the handicap parking space for the third time. He allows non disabled tenants without proper handicap placards or license plates to park there instead. I've protested to no avail. He has set a precedence to others that it's ok for them to park there. I don't like being yelled at by other tenants when I'm the one who's legally entitled to park there. I'm fed up with his total disregard for me and I want him to stop his rude, disrespectful, and prejudiced behavior toward me. He makes me feel very uncomfortable.
Do you have a proper handicap placard or license plate? If not, you are not entitled to park in that spot as there is no legal indication to the public that you, as the owner of the vehicle, are disabled.
