Advocates for disabled people and critics of Michigan’s generally lax enforcement of handicap parking laws say the problem starts with doctors.
“They’re the ones handing out the placards, and I do feel it is being abused,” said Erica Coulston, president of Walk the Line to SCI (spinal cord injury) Recovery.
