How do I find by-laws for various municipalities? What is the proper procedure should the space be lacking the necessary requirements?
And of course, I'm sure everyone has at one point parked in a handicapped spot with no sign. The ground painting is not visible in all weather, may not be viewable when backing-up into the space, can become faded, or of course covered with dirt or snow. So particularly when the spot doesn't meet the other marking or width requirements and is not the closest to the door, it is easy to accidentally park in them. Should one do so, and receive a ticket for the offence, is that sufficient grounds for defence? Should one come to court armed with by-laws and a photo? Is establishing the markings don't meet the by-law requirements sufficient, or does one need to try and capture a picture under the same conditions they parked to show there were no visible indications it was a handicapped spot?
