CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Shoppers are busy this time of year, and New Hampshire authorities are asking them to be considerate of people with disabilities in store parking lots.
The Department of Safety and New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police have asked shoppers to remember to keep the access aisles next to disability parking spaces open, with no cars, carts or snow there.
Police Chief Richard Crate, president of the association, says parking in a hatch-marked access aisle blocks a shopper with a disability from getting into or out of a vehicle.
Fines for parking in an access aisle or a disability parking spot can be as high as $250.
