Be careful where you park

The Lake Oswego Police Department is clamping down on those who illegally park in handicapped places.

Community Service Officer Andrea Soltman has been issuing citations to vehicle owners who illegally use handicapped parking placards.

A mobile data computer allows Soltman to immediately verify if a disabled person parking permit has expired, if the driver issued the permit is deceased or an altered disabled placard is used.

The fine for using an altered or invalid disabled parking permit can be as high as $1,200.
