1946 - Open-casket service for William S. Hart at his Newhall home; Rudy Vallee sings "The Last Round-up" [story]


Investigators with the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) caught 381 out of 4,951, including 11 people in Valencia, fraudulently using disabled person parking placards during 22 enforcement operations in April.  Investigators confiscated the placards and issued each offender a misdemeanor citation that carries a $250 to $1,000 fine. The violation will also appear on their driver record.

Since July 1, 2017, DMV investigators have issued 2,212 citations during 213 crackdown efforts, which is significantly more than the 1,625 citations they handed out during the 2016/17 fiscal year.

The DMV carries out as many as 24 enforcement operations each month in an effort to reduce the impact disabled person parking placard fraud has on the mobility of those with disabilities.

Here are the results of enforcement operations during April 2018:
Disabled Parking Placard Citations

Anyone who suspects a person might be misusing a disabled person placard is urged to report it using an online complaint form or by contacting their local DMV Investigations office. Submissions are confidential. It is important to note that some qualifying disabilities are not visually apparent and allegations of misuse might be unfounded.

    I think we should have to reapply every year or two! I know people who need one after surgery or an injury keep using it after they’ve healed.

  4. Denise Ware Denise Ware says:

    about time they cracked down

  5. Cintya E Malone I wonder if our nemesis got busted

  6. Please ask Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital to kindly remove their generator from the handicap spot it’s been occupying for almost 4 months. Sad for a hospital SCVTV Santa Clarita

  7. Austin Dave perhaps you should ask if the hospital feels this is the best spot to park a backup generator. Santa Clarita Valley Signal

  8. Jeanne says:

    I hope they aren’t issuing tickets again like the woman last year who dropped her disabled mom off at the entrance to a store and then parked the car in handicapped space. This should be legal. I used to save my mom some steps too by doing this (she could barely walk) and then we had to walk to the car in the parking lot after she finished her shopping while she used the cart to support herself.There are enough people REALLY cheating and using these spaces without attacking people taking care of elderly parents.
