In recent months I have been noticing that cars have been parking in the wheelchair van parking spots at local merchants. Now, these cars have handicapped drivers and that's fine, but they make it difficult for customers that are confined to a wheelchair to find a parking spot that provides ample space to exit their vehicle. The American Disabilities Act regulations state that wheelchair van parking spots must have a wider aisle than regular handicap parking spots to accommodate a wheelchair lift or ramp.
