Consumer blog Consumerist had a post on Redbox users who think handicap parking spaces are designed for them. The temptation is there -- you're just going to pull up for a minute or two to pick up or return a movie from the Redbox kiosk and the handicap parking spots are right there. It would be so much easier to pull into that spot than find one elsewhere and trek back. But, as Consumerist points out, it's illegal and rude and you just shouldn't do it.
