To the Editor:

In a letter on Sunday, April 14, Rosina Eauska asked a question about a young person parking in a handicap parking space. To answer her question, nobody can park in a handicap spot unless he or she is driving the handicap person.

All other persons who drive their grandpa, grandmother or any relative’s car are not authorized to park in a handicap spot (unless the handicap person is present) even if the vehicle has handicap plates.

I know that rule is abused here in the city of Killeen.

City ordinance 28-128c, states the authorization of handicap persons and who is authorized to park in those spots.

    Thank you for your letter. However, state law is clear, and the ordinance echoes that law.
