A new disability parking law goes into effect Tuesday with costly penalties and long driver's license suspensions.
The new law makes abuse and fraud of placards and disability license plates a misdemeanor. "We have a lot of individuals who insist upon using someone else's disability placard or parking their car in place that have been set aside for those who are truly disabled, and I look upon that as a violation of all laws of human decency for you to be abled-bodied, but you want to take advantage of a law set aside for those who are not," said Illinois Sec. of State Jesse White. White is getting tough with this new law.
