An Insensitive Proposal, or Two

A recent post at Wizbang led me to these observations about parking for handicapped persons:

Unused handicapped parking spaces should be converted to planters for attractive, environmentally correct trees and shrubs (preferably of flowering varieties). Alternatively, all of those unused parking spaces could be metered for general use at, say, $5 an hour. I have no doubt that the spaces would be in almost constant use non-handicapped drivers, most of whom would actually put money in the meters. The proceeds could then be used to provide taxi rides for handicapped drivers, most of whom (in my experience) are a menace to other drivers.
