ISSUE:

Anne Arundel County this weekend began enforcing a new law that calls for a $500 citation against drivers who illegally park in spots reserved for the disabled.

The stiffer fine - the maximum allowed in Maryland - is a tenfold increase from the previous $50 penalty.

"Hopefully, what it will do is preserve for the physically challenged in our county their parking spaces and their access to our facilities," said County Executive John R. Leopold.

YOUR VIEW:

Does the $500 penalty fit the crime?
