Handicap Placards Folo - My9 New Jersey

Handicap Placards Folo

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Sibile continues to chase the story about handicap placard fraud in Trenton.  After visiting the town again and unable to find any parking, she walked down West State Street and every car she saw had a handicap placard.  Are there really that many handicapped NJ residents driving cars? Well in order to get to the bottom of it Sibile called the DMV and found out that 1 in 10 drives in New Jersey have a handicap placard. Unfortunately, there is no way to find out if the placards in these cars are legit, and police don't seem to be enforcing parking rules in this part of town.  After asking the DMV to file a request to see who is breaking the rules, she was told that they are unable to give her any names under the "Driver Privacy Act".

So Sibile took this story and her frustration to a gentleman who is disabled and he claims that people who are doing this are incredibly "selfish" and taking away spaces from people who need them in a legitimate way. In fact you can even buy handicap placards online! And one Chaser shows how he created a fraudulent one by simply using Photoshop. So if you know of someone doing this you can report them handicapfraud.org.

    For many, the conflict between Israel and Palestine hits close to home. Yesterday a rally took place outside of the United Nations building in New York City and people from both sides were on hand to voice their concerns about the ongoing airstrikes. New Jersey’s Rabbi Gross discussed the fact that many of his former students, after graduation, decided to join the Israeli Defense Force and are now immersed in the fighting.

    The Bergen County Sheriff's Department is proposing to militarize their police force! This involves them wanting an MRAP, which is a Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle. This vehicle is actually used by the military in Iraq and Afghanistan. According to the military this isn't unheard of. Recently, the US government has given these vehicles away to law enforcement departments all over the country.
