TPD Volunteer Parking Patrol

By  | 

Police trained the group of about 50 volunteers to them crack down on people illegally parking in handicapped spots.

The volunteers write tickets to offenders and even take pictures of the vehicles to prove they were parked illegally.

One a disabled driver says people should be more considerate.

Dixie King, a disabled driver, said, "I think sometimes they do think it's just going to be a moment to pick something or pick up an individual, but it does impact people who use those spaces."

The Parking Patrol has been around for 10 years. TPD says they've written more than $70,000 worth of tickets.
