Police Accessibility Fail

"I saw the signs and it opened up my eyes. I saw the sign."
“I saw the signs and it opened up my eyes. I saw the sign.”

I snapped this classic photo yesterday on my way home from campus. Apologies for the low quality image, I took it with my iPhone and when the police officer saw that she was busted, she peeled out of the spot, never to be seen again. Still, I wonder how long she would have sat there in the wheelchair parking if someone hadn’t started snapping photos.
