Suffolk needs free parking for handicapped

Published 2:09 pm Wednesday, October 21, 2009

Now that election time is just around the corner for some city officials, perhaps they should address the issue of handicap parking.

I feel that handicapped individuals should not have to worry about timed parking. I have seen many handicapped people leaving the doctor’s office to move their cars. Once they return, they are winded, and this could cause an elevated blood pressure reading.

I am also referring to the city parking lot on E. Washington Street. Other cities in Hampton Roads have unlimited parking for their handicapped residents.

Remember, these individuals vote in large numbers. See you at the polls.
