Handicapped Parking

A modern gentleman does not believe in the practice of allocating parking spaces nearest the entrance of an establishment for persons with disabilities.

Common sense and courtesy should dictate the rules of parking space selection. Able-bodied customers can avoid traffic by parking farther from the door. They get a bit of exercise and leave plenty of nearer spaces available for customers who are disabled, or in a hurry.

This simple solution has caused numerous ancillary problems.

This practice — certainly started with the best of intentions — has segmented the population, breeding pity or envy rather than compassion and consideration.
