Stolen Spaces Highlights Disabled Parking Issues, Features MI Paralyzed Veterans Director

“Stolen Spaces” by Jennifer Dixon, Jim Schaefer, and Kristi Tanner was featured in the Detroit Free Press in 2012 and recently nominated for an Emmy  in the Societal Concerns/News Feature category

Mike Harris, executive director of the Michigan Paralyzed Veterans of America, said that after health care, handicap parking "is our No. 1 issue, by far. We get so frustrated -- you can't do anything if you don't have the proper spots."

Parking, he said, "is a critical element of providing independence for our members."

From the Detroit Free Press: Ever wonder why some drivers park in handicap spots when they're clearly not handicapped? Come along as Free Press reporters confront scofflaws who think it's their right to park wherever they please.
