If you dropped him off why wouldn't you park in a regular spot and then leave the disabled spot for someone who did not have a able driver? Your did did not have to walk from the spot so you had no reason to park there. That is ultimately who the spot if for

I understand where you are coming from. I would like to point out how this way of thinking affects people such as myself and the OP who live or drive around disabled passengers:

What happens after leaving the building with the disabled person? Since I was not allowed to park in that spot. In heavy snow or weather I am to wheel or walk the disabled person to the non-accessible parking spot? Why would I do that? Any idea how difficult that is?

So it really means I cant leave!? So then that means, as I stated above, it is in my opinion that this can become a form of detention for the driver of the disabled person, because "the driver" is at risk of being charged a $500 ticket, if for any reason the driver needs to leave and go elsewhere.

The idea of a handicap parking in the first place is to make it accessible. If a disabled person who doesn't drive, needs a driver to drive them, then by extension I would argue that driver now has the accessible parking spot available to them as well.

You are not parking you are dropping off. Then you go park in a regular spot and go in. Then you walk to your car and return to pick up the disabled person. The disabled person is not walking to and from the spot.

That leaves the spot available for the person who actually cannot walk. You as the driver dropping off can walk but chose not to.

That is why the pass holder has to be at the parking spot
