Town considers forcing handicapped drivers to use designated spots

The town of Kearny, New Jersey has a parking problem.  There are too many cars and not enough spots.

One solution being considered, forcing people with handicap permits to only park in handicapped spots.

Councilwoman Susan McCurrie said disabled drivers who park in regular parking spots in residential areas where there is a designated spot for handicapped plates could be looking at a $100 fine.

Disabled drivers who violate the ordinance could lose their handicapped spot.

A public hearing and vote on the ordinance was expected to take place Tuesday.
