My late father was one of the people who needed and used the disabled parking sticker to get the really close spots in front of the stores.

He had several things going wrong with him, near the end of his life. He could hardly walk, due to some knee injuries he had.

Regardless of that fact, we both wondered why each store around here seems to inundate the parking lots with disabled spots.

This was made more an issue when I had to run to the front of the store in a pouring down shower. We have been experiencing torrential rainstorms and flooding in Washington State.

So the first 10 stalls in each group were not available. That equals 40 spots.

I don't know how they come up with the percentage of stalls for disabled, but I think that they went way overboard.

If I were disabled, I for one would not mind parking a little further away as long as the spots were a little wider.
