just a bit ostentatious

So there is this guy at my work who parks his new ford F150 in the handicap spot closest to the building. I see it there every day. Sometimes I see him walking to and from it. He appears perfectly healthy. No crutches, no limp, nothing overweight, and he eats at Mcdonalds. I know cuz I followed him there one time inadvertantly.

Today there's a flock of mexicans scurrying around his truck. There is an on-site detailing wash truck parked next to it (also in a handicap spot), and his truck has all the doors open with a bunch of detailing guys detailing the interior.

I had noticed that his truck was always spotless. Now I know how.

I'll bet that handicap hang tag is fake. This company is too big for me to find out unfortunately. Ahwell.

I'm not feeling very humble lately.

You should tip off the DMV. There is a pretty hefty fine for illegal use of a handicapped parking placard. In CA, it's a minimum $250 fine, maximum $3500, and/or up to 6 months in jail!

Is he cybertrust? Or just in the building?

false use of a DMV Handicap tag (if legal) is $1000.
Falsifying a Handicap tag, is a felony, and punishable by $5000 and jail time. DC and VA dont tolerate that nonsense.

Does it have a hang-tag, or a handicapped license plate?

It's worth having it checked out, but do please be aware that hangtags can be given out for "invisible" disabilities like heart conditions. He may be a rich asshole with a bizarrely clean truck, but it is not outside the realm of possibility that he does have some condition like that.

Handicup tags are easly given to almost anyone. I have a friend that FROM TIME TO TIME... his knees hurt and got one.

Coworker has his legs screwed up and he asks for no handicup tag.

seems the mexican detailers are giving those spots beter use than a lot of people that don`t deserve handicup tags.

Let it slide..........
I'm trying to take life that way right about now. And if we can really conform to that mentality, I *think* things will be easier, in general. But I dunno for sure. But at least I'm not taking my guns to work!!! That's a step in the right direction.

Even if the tag belongs to or was issued to his wife, it's illegal for him to use it when she's not in the vehicle.

Call the cops on his sorry ass. Tell them that you see him walking with no apparent physical handicap (which is what's required for a handicap tag -- just being mentally ill to the point of disability doesn't count) to a vehicle that has nobody else in it. Get his license plate number and give it to them, and if you happen to wander by, get the tag number from the handicap tag. Let the cops sort it out.
