WITN News At Five: Ron Curll's Rolling Mission

Tuesday on WITN News at 5:00 p.m., meet Ron Curll.

He's been in a wheelchair for three decades, but it hasn't stopped him from his mission. This volunteer is helping police crack down on handicapped parking laws.

Lorin Richardson shows us how volunteers from "Citizens on Patrol" are helping out the Greenville police.

    I agree with everyone, except Dale. Thanks Guy, you're so right, we all know who you're talking about! I witness that mess all the time! I would rather walk a little further, than park in a handicapped spot!!

    Well put, "Thanks guy"!!! But, we must show "respect" and help these freeloaders earn a "legacy" rather than something called a paycheck.

    Dale- actually accessible parking is a Federal mandate, not state law. Additionally, someone "on disability" does not necessarily qualify for an accessible parking placard, nor does everyone with the placard receive disability. I assume here you are referring to the Social Security program, when you say "on disability". The most interesting aspect to this, however, is that accessibility measures taken by businesses are usually highly affordable and result in proportionally higher profits from the people who utilize things like ramps, accessible parking, and extra wide or automated entrances. In short, it pays to be accessible.

    I hope you are in a wheel chair someday so you can learn what equal rights are all about...

    Go to Wal-Mart in any town and you'll see the healthiest people park in a handicap spot and walk on in to the store. No cane, no limp, no nothing!

    Thank you for citing these bums...next I wish we could ticket everyone of you lazy, worthless fools who park in the fire lane at the grocery store. Maybe you should not be a fat, welfare taking, slob of human being piece of society excrement. Also, no one wants to hear your music across the parking lot. No one ordered a parking lot DJ, nor are you "phat yo" Also talking about the same people who buy rims from places where they pay by the week! hahahahaha. You bunch of schmucks.

    For 50 years everyone in this country has fought for equal rights. Why does the state and federal government make these requirements for handicapped parking? I understand making things accessible, but why make a special parking space for someone on disability to use. If you are equal, find an equal space.
