    Default Texas Handicap Parking but Sign Was Unclear

    My question involves a traffic citation from the state of: Texas

    Hello All,

    I don't go to downtown very often and I'm used to seeing handicap parking marked in the parking spot. That said, when I see a spot without this mark in the spot, I automatically assumed it wasn't handicap and look for whether or not it's pay to park.



    So in this mindset, when I look out my dashboard... I only paid attention to the pay to park sign and didn't even notice the handicap sign. Not only that, my parking spot is apparently half pay to park and half reserved parking (this sign was placed in the middle of the parking spot). The fine is $511. Do I have a case or should I just pay the fine?

    Best regards,
    Kelvin

    Are you asking if you have a defense to parking in a clearly parked handicapped spot? I guess you could be asking if you should get half of the parking fee back because the sign is in the center of the parking space, but....

    The signage appears to be clear enough. Your best bet is to look at your ticket and find errors or omissions that are required.

    I always take parking tickets to the admin review process...it won't hurt. All of my defenses have been technical in nature ... and have not lost one yet.

    Howdy,

    Just wondering.. in your book, this parking spot is clearly marked as a handicapped spot? Don't mean to start an argument or anything but I'm just curious.

    Cheers,
    Kelvin
