President Luke starts new campaign; fights handicap abusers

HOUSTON – Seeing a President wearing a parking enforcement hat is rarely ever seen, given that most of the time Presidents are in suits and assist the communities at their desks.

President Luke began his newest and most successful campaign on Monday afternoon, suiting up for his first shift as a volunteer handicap enforcement officer for the City of Houston.

The decision was made about two weeks ago, when President Luke personally noticed the amount of violations at just his job alone.

“It’s beyond ridiculous.” said President Luke. “Disabled parking has been abused, even before United States President Clinton signed it into law in the 1990s and it’s only been getting worse.” he added.

Equipped with a citation book, warning cards, a camera, pepper spray, and a radio, the President hopes he can not only teach valuable lessons to those who violate, but educate those as to why these parking spaces are so important.

Right now in Houston, the fine for violating a disabled space is $500 USD. As of Wednesday evening, President Luke has issued 16 citations, resulting in a total of $8,000 in fines. Some citations will be dismissed, especially when issued to a disabled person who forgot to hang their placard.

Those who refuse to pay their fine risk having their vehicles booted and their credit affected. With the position being a volunteer community initiative, President Luke will spend most of his days off from work performing these duties.
