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.
