Was working at Cosi yesterday when I saw someone I know run into the restaurant for a to-go lunch. Her brother, meanwhile, waited in the car—in a handicapped spot.
On the one hand, the motor was running and the person was inside for, oh, 10 minutes (there was a line). On the other hand, it sorta strikes me as crap. Even if its vacant 90% of the time, the handicapped space is there for a single reason—handicapped people.
What do you think? Is it OK to use the space if someone remains in the car? If it’s only for a minute or two?
