My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Texas
Hello I have a question that seems to fall in a gray area. I live in a "gated" apartment community (gate has never worked). All of the unmarked spaces are for residents with window stickers. There is assigned visitor spaces that are labeled such. For handicapped spaces, they are not labeled visitor, they just have the handicapped sign. There are NO "visitor" handicapped spaces, all handicapped spaces are unmarked besides the disabled sign. The office is open to the public, there is one handicapped space right in front of the office NOT labeled visitor nor office use and is just like every other handicapped space in the parking lot.
Now, I have been told by everyone in the office, ALL handicapped spaces are for residents only. Logic would dictate the handicapped space directly in front of the office is for residents then (logic is not strong with management )
My question is, are they required to have "handicapped visitor" spaces or are visitor handicapped people allowed to park in any handicapped space? I don't want to have a visitor towed because management doesn't know what the law is. From what I've read, since they are open to the public, they are required to have certain number of "visitor handicapped" spaces per "visitor" spaces or all handicapped spaces can be used by anyone.
Can anyone shed light on this?
