Phoenix volunteers crackdown on handicapped parking violators

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

Parking in a handicapped spot illegally can be tempting when you're in a hurry, but Phoenix neighbors are keeping an eye on you.

Phoenix Police Department started a task force made up of volunteers to make sure people don't park in handicapped spots illegally.

Volunteers with the "Save Our Space" campaign commit four hours a week to patrol the city of Phoenix and write parking citations.

You may think "It's just five minutes", but you could end up with fines from $288 to as high as $480.

The campaign hopes to educate people on how important designated parking spots are to the handicapped.

To report violators, call the disabled parking violation hotline at 602-534-SPACE.
