    Placard Enforcement Checkpoint = AWESOME!!

    HAHA! Ok, I've never exactly considered myself "Pro-Law Enforcement" but I give MEGA PROPS to the Sonoma County Sheriff's Dept. For any of my SCI friends who’ve had do lap after lap in the parking lot because some Lazy & Obese FattF**k took the accessible parking spots, this video below is Fookin Priceless!!

    I think it's great and it's odd that it happened at a race track. I am a quad who drives from my chair, for the past 31 years I have been all over this country without being checked. Only once back in Illinois (Joliet Illinois) was I checked and it was at Route 66 drag strip in about 2003. Same as this video they waited till I got my drivers license out to match them up and let me go on and park.

    I LOVE IT !!!

    SHOULD DO IT EVERYWHERE !!!

      That is so great, I have a studio and it is right next to the police department so I know a few of the cops and I am going to ask them if they can do this very thing either at the ski area or at the next music festival this summer in town. I wish they would make me a temporary officer so I could go and check everyone at the local supermarket and give out tickets. I would check everyone and give out the max fine and just help people enjoy their vacation. This is the only thing that gets me pissed at people, pissed enough to feel good about recking someones vacation. I can be evil and mean.

          "I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit."

              Awesome! This needs to be done at all major event parking! Could be a big money maker for cities and towns as well as weed out the abusers of placards!

                Nice.

                Some organization should do a [nationwide] research study on just how big of a problem this is.

                    Hats off to the Sonoma County Sherifs department, I can't believe how much it gets abused over there!

                    We get a lot of people who have had "a bad back" at some point or another and are now living off benefits and have a blue badge and can't be bothered to go back to work. Really bugs me, I mean I'll even save a disabled spot if I can park elsewhere that I won't get blocked in, and the one time I really need to use one, they are all occupied by walkers... I know, I know, 'invisible disabilities' and all that, but they sure as hell seem to walk ok! (most of them anyway)

                    No, I didn't loose my mind... It got scared and ran away!!

                      I forwarded this to my local NASCAR track Texas Motor Speedway, got a nice response from a VP of Operations; unfortunately, the way the parking is laid out there is no feasible way of doing a checkpoint(and I agree with him, just had to try ). They do have the local cops doing placard/plate checks of all parked vehicles(and tow them away if none), and if the people are at the car, they do do a placard check on them. So I thought that was pretty cool and told him thanks for what they can do.

                        Great news! Great story! I love it! Does anyone know this answer? I have a "disabled" license plate. Do I also need a placard?

                          Great story! Great job Sonoma County Sheriff's Dept.!

                          On a side note, the boarder patrol agent should be fired. His wrongful use of the disabled permit may be a little thing but it shows a huge character flaw and lack of morals. Most LEO's are of outstanding character and high morals. RED FLAG U.S. BORDER PATROL!

                              Good job Sonoma County (wherever that is.) At my school, LE does something similar. Officers check to see if the person who has the placard matches his/her license and you have to have a letter from your doctor stating you have a disability.
