Handicap Parking Spaces

June 14, 2016

How come so many people are violating tenant parking spaces and Handicap Parking spaces in HUD buildings?

 

Tonight I witnessed a car receive a parking ticket because the car was parked in a Handicap space illegally. I decided to sit, watch, and wait. I was intrigued to see what the person would do when they arrived to their ticketed car. Well, I see a lady with her family walking to her car she buckles up her kids, and away she goes….I literally followed her by chance because it just so happened she was traveling in my direction.

 

What is the fine for parking illegally in a Handicap space in San Diego California and what is the fine when you drive off and may loose a ticket you don’t see on your window?

Guess what another misnomer! DSCF7110

The Property Management Company where I live, has now said, “The expenses” I have incurred over the past year for my service animal are not included in their calculation of my rent.  Needless to say, I was speechless. I new I needed help fast. I contacted my dear friend Patti Doyle. She lives here also and is waging her own battle with terminal cancer and her civil rights.  I called Legal Aid Society.  I spoke to a fair housing expert and she is guiding me through the process. Here  are the Hud.gov guidelines.

MEDICAL ISSUES:

Question 1: What is considered an “assistance animal?” If someone brings a prescription for an animal to lower blood pressure, or for depression or emotional well-being, do we then consider this an assistance animal? Do we then allow for vet bills on those animals in an elderly/disabled household?
Answer 1: An assistance animal is one that works, provides assistance, or performs tasks for the benefit of a person with a disability. Page 4 of the Glossary in the handbook gives a full definition of an Assistance Animal. Part of which is “providing emotional support to persons with disabilities who have a disability related need for such support.” See paragraph 2-44 and 3-38 for additional information on determining if a resident meets the definition of a person with a disability that makes them eligible for an assistance animal as a reasonable accommodation and how to verify the need for an assistance animal.

The need for an assistance animal has to be directly related to a disability, and the services performed by the animal must alleviate one or more identified symptom of that person’s disability.

Veterinary bills as well as other expenses related to the upkeep of the assistance animal are allowed medical expense for a qualified assistance animal.

Question 2: Are companion animals’ expenses medical deductions just like assistance animals?
Answer 2: Yes, if the animal you refer to as a companion animal meets the definition of an assistance animal and the requirements of Paragraphs 2-44 and 3-38 in HUD Handbook 4350.3 REV-1 are followed.

Now It Is Stated Regarding Service Animals.

Martin Luther King day!

Many people living with hidden disabilities are being discriminated against daily.

“Hiddendisabilities” last post on wordpress.com was a reaction to the first “Dog Walking Area” I shared how all my rights are being denied under Fair Housing. The second message arrived on my door January 15, 2015.  ANIMALS This is not okay under any fair housing where disabled people live. The other concern is under HUD can pets be taken away from seniors?

Hidden Disabilities

April 24, 2014

 

What is worse than being bullied?

It is being bullied by another so called “Disabled person.” Why should they get away with this destructive behavior? Because I am not in a wheelchair and don’t LOOK disabled gives them no right to judge me out loud.

How come a bully sees a nice person as weak. A bully takes their anger out on people.

I rent a special apartment for people who have special needs. I have been harshly discriminated against by other disabled people who live on the property. They are some of the rudest and crudest people I wish I had never met. One woman who lives on the property and uses a wheelchair is one of the meanest bullies on the block.

Bully: one who hurts or intimidates others.

The Hayliegh Project

                              The Hayliegh Project

I am finding it hard to calm down inside. My project helps those struggling with hidden disabilities and their civil rights. A big part of my project is to stop discrimination and people living with hidden disabilities. Today I took on a client who is living in senior and disabled housing the maintenance man on who lives on the property had the balls and yes the balls to confront my client because she was parked in handicap parking. She is terminal with cancer and dying. Do I need to paint the picture? This maintenance man after seeing my client pull up in handicap parking took it upon himself to confront my client saying he needed the spot for other utility people to have parking and for those with more disabilities, are you kidding me! NOTE: This maintenance man has been using the handicap space for a month now which I have personally witnessed.

He is lucky to have a roof over his head and a job!  How come HUD housing is allowing this? I am not against the person only the sin!
