TACOMA: Reap revenue from disability parking abusers

Chicago police say they’ve aggressively started cracking down on motorists who fraudulently use disabled parking placards. They’ve already confiscated at least 40 placards and issued 47 citations. That’s one for every five cars checked during 20 sting operations since August.

Violators face fines ranging from $500 to $1,000. Starting Jan. 1, penalties include the possibility of having driving privileges revoked.

Maybe this is what Tacoma should be doing. Revenue saves jobs.
