If asked you must also be able to prove its yours which is why they distribute handicapped IDs.
I can see the headlines now: "Parking Police Harass Handicapped. Driver forced to drop pants to prove knee disability"
j/k, of course. Too many friends/relatives of truly handicapped people take advantage of those handicap placards/plates, using parking spaces when the handicapped person isn't even in the car. I don't think they have much of a conscience. I felt guilty using those spaces when I took my sister Christmas shopping. She's handicapped, but I'm not.
