Secretary of State Jesse White says the holiday crackdown on drivers misusing parking spots designated for those with disabilities was a success. Secretary of State Police conducted random checks at malls across the state over the holidays, and issued 187 tickets for illegally parking in a handicap space.

White says in many cases, those caught were using someone else’s placard.


White comments

The fine in that case is up to 500 dollars, but White is looking to increase that further.
