COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Someone is catching heat for taking to task a disabled veteran who parked in a handicapped spot.
A person left a sign on Catherine Rodriguez’s car recently reading, “Sure don’t look or act handicap! Don’t care what you think.”
Rodriguez suffers from debilitating seizures and has had several brain surgeries.
“I thought it was kind of funny how people can judge just by how somebody looks whether they have a disability or not,” Rodriguez said.
The local Americans With Disabilities Center says in Colorado especially, people have to be aware of what are called “invisible injuries.” All one needs for proof to park in a handicap spot is a placard or license plate.
