Anne Arundel County police are targeting drivers who fraudulently use handicap tags, use fake placards or wrongly park in spaces reserved for disabled people's vehicles. Police said the crackdown is taking place countywide during one week each in May, August and November, and one took place in February. It includes shopping centers and mall lots. A violation is subject to a fine of up to $500. The medical certification for handicap parking must be shown to officers who ask to see it, police said.

AEGIS STAFF REPORT | June 3, 2014
Just as sure as summer will soon arrive, with it will come street paving jobs, and the Town of Bel Air has seven planned this year. The town's 2014 repaving list includes Edgehill Drive, Edgehill Court, Harlan Street, Francis Avenue, Faulkner Court, Orley Place and East Broadway between McCormick Street and Shamrock Road, Public Works Director Randy Robertson said. At their meeting Monday night, members of the Board of Town Commissioners approved a $247,100 contract with Frank J. Goettner Construction Company of Kingsville to do the paving, which Robertson said amounts to laying down 138,000 square feet of blacktop.

Leona Grap will find herself in an unusual situation this week. She is the only woman in a 17-person group -- all from the Baltimore area -- going off to play in a golf tournament.

Were there really almost 2,000 thefts of handicapped placards from vehicles in Baltimore in 2012? Who are all these people stealing placards from the disabled ( "City to reserve hundreds of parking spaces for disabled," Feb. 1)? If there's a Hell, I hope there's an especially warm and toasty section reserved for these deeply disturbed folks. By the way, to those who shudder at the thought of forthcoming parking challenges created by the change in parking policy, I'd trade my placard in any day and park a mile away from everywhere I need to go for the rest of my life if I could lose the MS-related disability.

The region has had its first flirt with winter weather this week, and now meteorologists are handicapping whether the upcoming season could be the snowiest since 2009-2010, or another dud. In general, Baltimore's snowiest winters occur when high-pressure systems park over Greenland, blocking Arctic air and moisture and sending it further south across the Northeast and mid-Atlantic U.S. This is most common when the climate phenomenon El Nino is...

In September of this year, Allstate ranked Baltimore as having the second worst drivers of any large metropolitan area in the country. In part, Allstate claimed "Baltimore's drivers struggle more than nearly any other city in the nation…" I think that Allstate was too kind. I have lived in several large cities across the country and driven in 45 of the 50 states and several other countries. I have found that Baltimore drivers are surpassed in their impatience, negligence and disdain for the laws of the road only by the drivers in Rome, Italy.

It would be valuable if the city constructed benches around Baltimore's stadiums and along the walkways to the parking lots serving them so that people with disabilities could walk to their cars and occasionally take a short rest en route. Some of the lots are half a mile or more from their stadium. This discourages many people and deprives fans of the ability to attend these venues. It is not too late to do the right thing. Terren M.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Mine That Bird spent the week tucked away in the Kentucky Derby Museum, not far from the track at Churchill Downs and the throngs wondering who will win the 139th run for the roses. The 2009 Derby winner seems to enjoy when fans stop in for a visit. A gelding who retired from racing in 2010, he appears at ease. And even as rail birds and once-a-year track goers alike fall for impressive looking favorites, Mine That Bird reminds them that their hunch is actually a guess.
