Enforce handicapped parking laws


Editor, The Commercial

I would like to know why the Pine Bluff Police does not enforce the handicap parking laws. I have noticed a lot of people that are not handicapped and do not have plates or placards in their vehicles.

I called 911 awhile back because a vehicle was parked across two handicap parking spaces, and I reported it to the Pine Bluff Police, and their response was that they were not allowed to issue tickets for violation of handicap parking spaces unless the manager called them.

The manager will not call because they might lose a customer. This is not Arkansas law that the manager has to call.
