Disabled? Prove It.

Labor lawPolice in Foxborough, Mass., aren’t fooling around when it comes to parking for the disabled this football season: Use a parking placard while attending a Patriots’ game and you’d better be able to prove it’s legit.

Officers assigned to Gillette Stadium are spot-checking cars parked in spaces reserved for the disabled during all special events at football games. Drivers who can’t prove the parking placards they’re using are really theirs lose the placards on the spot and face hefty fines—a minimum of $505. In-state drivers also risk having their driver licenses suspended for 30 days.

Read about the effort here. And let us know—good plan or is there a better option?
