The Insider has learned from a recent email to firstname.lastname@example.org that many people are abusing handicapped parking placards in Proviso Township. Sources tell the Insider that visitors and staffers at Proviso Township High Schools are frequently spotted using the placards. During a random check on Monday, February 25, 2008, Forest Park police reportedly ticketed former Proviso employee Arbdella "Della" Patterson for falsely using a handicapped placard. Forest Park Police also reportedly ticketed a high ranking union official for the same offense. Sources say teachers at Proviso East and Proviso West have been known to do the same thing, but a new crackdown may embarass these abusers.
