Commentary: Disability Parking and No Parking Zones

Do grown adults not know what white or yellow diagonal slashes are on the pavement mean? or the international symbol for disability parking in the above picture mean?

Do they not teach this in school or drivers ed class? Being a wheelchair user I can not get out of my apartment when people park in the no parking zone blocking the ramp leading out of the apartment. Apartment management seems sympathetic, but not empathetic enough to take action quick enough. I spent 2 hours yesterday trying to get them to ticket and tow the vehicle, but they insisted on trying to make nice and try to contact and educate the offender! They should know they parked in the wrong. They are supposedly responsible enough to drive. TOW THEM NOW not 6-7 hours later! Thoughts?

(Note the picture above represents how the car we dealt with yesterday as parked, it's not the actual car or apartment we reside in picture a row of car stalls and a curb with a ramp coming down from the curb into the top of the no parking spot and the car parked right up against the ramp).

What do you think of this story?
