As a motorcyclist, road bicycle rider, and car driver I a always interested in fostering good will and respect use of the road. As a physician with handicapped patients I'm keenly aware of parking. So please consider not parking in handicapped spots or the blue lines around them they are needed space for loading or unloading wheelchairs etc. even if you just stopped for the picture it sets a bad example and appears to be disrespectful.

It just my opinion take it leave it. I do not claim to know you or your intentions.
You must not hang out here much or you would have seen my handicapped license plate in some of my other posts. Jumping to conclusions is not a healthy exercise. As I explained to the DMV worker, all of my bikes have motors so my bad leg and cane don't stop me from riding since I don't have to pedal them. As for my choice of parking space, I position my bike far enough to the rear and away from the car beside me to allow unfettered access. The other reason I use that spot is to free up another full handicapped space for a car driver that needs it. How about climbing off of your high horse and onto your bike. If you're busy riding you don't have time to draw wrong conclusions.
