They are trying to make sure that no one parks in the spots illegally, especially now during the busy holiday season.

The deputies are patrolling all the shopping centers in the county and if they find a driver who parked illegally, that driver will face hundreds of dollars in fines.

The sheriff told WCBS 880 reporter Sophia Hall that if you see a car parked in one of the designated spaces without a handicap licence plate or placard in the window, you can call and report the driver.
