As most people know - or SHOULD know - parking in a handicap parking space without being handicapped is ILLEGAL. That's right, it's AGAINST THE LAW. But, people still do it all the time, for numerous reasons. Whether it's because the parking spot is closer, they're just going to be in the store for a few minutes, or they just don't care, it's still illegal.

Now, it looks like the Nacogdoches Police Department is going to start cracking down on this problem. Check out the post from yesterday on their Facebook page:

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) will be helping them enforce handicap parking violations.

Basically, this means that if you're one of those people that parks in handicapped spaces illegally . . . STOP DOING THAT! Only now, there will be consequences for it. So, watch out.
