I want to apologize to the man in the blue van who recently was unable to get into his vehicle at the Summit Woods shopping center.
I went to Christmas shop for the first time after my husband died on Thanksgiving Day. It was so crowded! I finally found a handicapped space. After shopping, I left empty-handed and returned to a nice police officer who asked me if this was my vehicle. She proceeded to tell me the gentleman had waited for more than 30 minutes and wanted the citation written. I was about to be towed. I signed my name and cried all the way home.
I have since noticed that many people cross over the parallel loading lines between spaces. I was wrong for not parking exactly between the lines and thank God that I have not yet needed a wheelchair with my MS.
Be aware and be considerate of others on both sides of the line.
