JUNEAU (AP) -- People who illegally park in spaces reserved for the disabled would pay heavier fines under a measure unanimously passed in the Senate.
The bill would raise the current fine to $125 for illegally parking in a handicapped space. It also would allow two points each to be accessed from a person's driving record for subsequent offenses.
The bill also requires that only a disabled person may use the space, regardless of whether a car has the appropriate handicapped permit displayed.
Senate Bill 206 is sponsored by Sen. Dave Donley, R-Anchorage. It was passed on Friday and now goes to the House.
