Adam: Handicap Parking Fines

You want a classic example of why newspapers are in trouble? Look no further than today’s riveting Idaho Statesman Editorial alleging that Idaho’s too lenient on those parking in disabled parking places, saying, “Meanwhile, state law sets a $100 fine that doesn’t provide much deterrent.” They suggest following the example of Oregon and raising it to $190 for the first offense and $450 for second and subsequent offenses. I actually think a $100 fine is plenty of deterrent. This isn’t like it was in the early 1990s when I lived in Montaa where the fine for speeding was $5. A lot of folks would consider that just an entertainment expense/Adam's Blog. More here.

Question: How much should be fined for handicap-parking violations?
