This is obviously a problem, based on how easy it was for us to find handicap placard abuse. So what should be done?

The WBZ I-Team repeatedly observed how some drivers are using someone else’s handicap placard to park for free at meters all day.

While covering a story in the Seaport District, we noticed there were A LOT of vehicles parked with handicap placards. So we decided to spend a few days observing... and it didn't take long to catch people cheating the system to park for free all day at meters. So what can be done to curb the abuse?
Our story coming up tonight on WBZ | CBS Boston
