Handicap Spaces

I’m finding this problem more and more, there seem to be less handicap places and more of these “pickup only” kind of parking in the front of stores and restaurants where a handicap place should be instead. So while I struggle to find a parking spot that is close enough to the store that when I walk in the hot summer sun I don’t faint walking to the store, an able body person can park their car in the front and get their merchandise quickly as long as they’re just “picking up” or ordered take out. 🌈💙So today I took a “pickup only” spot so I could walk into Lowe’s since all of the FOUR other handicap spots were taken. 💙 Does anyone else have this problem. I see it a lot at the mall, or in places like McDonald’s where there are two handicapped spots but then all other spots in front are three take out spots in front of the store. Isn’t it possible to move these pick up locations to a less high volume place to park. If you need to pick up a heavy item designate a place on the side of your building for people to park not right in front of the store where people with disabilities need access.😉 Just a friendly suggestion.
