Citizen Patrols Enter Hunt For Handicap Parking Violators

The city's Human Rights Department is completing plans for a program that would have a squad of volunteers hunt for vehicles that are illegally parked in handicapped spots and report them to police.
Director Lana Turner-Addison told city councilors Tuesday that since the program's concept was made public last month, she's received several phone calls from people wanting to participate.
Oklahoma City has had a successful program for more than 20 years, but it goes a step further, with volunteers empowered to issue the citations, Turner-Addison said.
