Letter to the editor: Ticket handicapped violators
BY David L. Haas, Tulsa

Why do we have handicapped parking? It's abused by people who are not authorized to use it.
The city needs revenue. Here is a solution: As our city's police force patrols, pull through parking lots and write tickets for those illegally parked. The fine is $250. What a huge boost to our revenues and punishment for those who readily abuse this law with total disregard to the people who depend on these spaces.
