Broken: Handicapped parking in Rhode Island

 Elliot Ciora sends two photos of obstructed handicapped parking spots in Rhode Island.

The first is located in the parking lot of a Brooks Drugs in Pawtucket. The handicapped parking sign has been moved so far into the parking space that nobody can park there.

The second is at The East Side Market Place in Providence. Straight ahead and to the right is Epoch Assisted living, whose residents use the handicapped parking spaces, when they haven't been plowed over with snow.

Update June 10: Elliot Ciora writes in to say: "Brooks has moved the signs so that the spaces are now open for use, allowing for the use of those spaces!"


Both of these pictures are just brutal!

At the 7-11 around the corner from my house, the handicapped space is clearly marked with a warning of high fines... so people don't park in it, but instead park in the spot next to it, which is where the ramp is.

ok... first of all, what moved the sign thingys there? second, that wouldn't be considered broken- that would be considered misplaced

that picture on the right is just sad. why would anyone move a handicapped sign for a stupid parking spot? (if that's the case) they could just find one somewhere else
