Misuse of Downtown Disabled Parking Spaces

Posted on September 3, 2019 at 12:03 PM by Nancy Oakland-Potter

Q.  The disabled parking spot on Grand and 2nd, outside the Laramie Main Street office is consistently taken by someone without a disabled permit dropping into a store for “just a minute.” I seem to watch non-disabled drivers sliding into that spot about a third of the time just as I’m pulling up. Can a permit for this spot be enforced more often or more readily? Given that people park for a short time and feel it’s fine to park for a short time, someone would need to be watching. Alternatively, there would be a 10-minute spot nearby for everyone to use.

A.  If you notice a vehicle parked in a designated disabled parking space without a proper disabled placard displayed, please call Dispatch at 721-2526 immediately and provide a description of the vehicle. The Laramie Police Department will respond as call load allows.
