Pacific Audit Solutions PAS Parking ticket issued for DISABLED vehicle with state disability sticker displayed and Pass issued by apartment complex Portland Oregon
July 9, 2014 we (my disabled husband and myself) parked our van with a Washington State Disability placard displayed in the windshield in the Disable Parking space at our son's apartment complex. We also obtained a written PASS as visitors from the Village at Lovejoy Apartment complex office.
We were allowed to park in the lot until 6 pm and then had to move another block away after that time. At 5:00 PM I moved the vehicle to the other spot as required on the parking pass. We then continued our visit with our son. At 6:30 PM, I moved the vehicle BACK to the apartment parking lot and parked in the same Disable spot. Then we proceeded to move laundry and other items from the 11th floor apartment to the van. In between one of these trips, the Pacific Audit Solutions employee issued us a ticket at 6:58 PM for unauthorized parking. When we came downstairs with another load of items, I saw the ticket.
My outrage is this.... are there no protections for the Disabled? We had a STATE placard clearly in view. Does this company totally disregard the disability protection act just to collect a buck? We followed directions by moving the vehicle at the required time, but because my husband is totally disabled and could not walk a block to the vehicle, I moved it back closer to the door and parked in a designated Disable parking spot. This way my husband would not have to walk to far and we could finish putting the laundry baskets and other items into the van. AND we still got a parking ticket.
True the cost is only $39.00, but the point is does this company have the right to disregard the State and Federal Disabiltiy Act.
I am going to follow up with the State Department about this and this is an outrage and maybe they are in violation of State and/or Federal laws protecting the disabled. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. My husband may be disabled but he still has some fight left in him and we will pursue this.
