Investigators with the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) caught the offenders during 217 enforcement operations conducted statewide.Those found to be misusing placards have them confiscated and receive a misdemeanor citation that carries a $250 to $1,000 fine. The violation also appears on the individual’s driver record.“When someone misuses a disabled person parking placard, they disrupt the lives of those with disabilities and interfere with their mobility,” said acting DMV Director Kathleen Webb. “Through education and enforcement, we hope the number of offenders our enforcement team cites decreases. I want to remind Californians to save the space.”California state law mandates that a disabled person parking placard only be used by the person to whom it is assigned. Investigators are able to verify that a disabled parking placard is being appropriately used by comparing the placard assignment number with an accompanying registration card and personal identification.Typical abuses include drivers parking in a marked disabled parking spot without a placard, drivers using a placard issued to a family member or friend and using the access area to load and unload passengers who do not have a disability.The DMV holds as many as many as 24 enforcement operations each month throughout the state. The department also launched an awareness campaign to educate the public about the proper use of a disabled person parking placard.Here are the results of enforcement operations:Fiscal Year Citations Issued Operations2018/19 1,987 2172017/18 2,485 2562016/17 1,625 1652015/16 738 113Anyone who suspects a person might be misusing a disabled person placard is urged to report it using an online complaint form or by contacting their local DMV Investigations office.

Colombia is ready to share efforts and personnel with neighboring countries in the fight against organized crime, Defense Minister Rodrigo Rivera declared on 3 February, following a meeting with his U.S. counterpart, Robert Gates. “Despite the successes we’ve had, we can’t feel at ease; we feel that we also have a great deal to contribute. Just as in our most difficult moments we received cooperation, we’re now not only offering, but putting forward specific cooperation,” Rivera declared at a press conference. “It’s our obligation to talk about these issues. The United States is making a great effort; so are we,” he added. A total of fourteen Latin American countries, including Mexico and Central American nations, are being advised by Colombian military or police forces on security matters, the minister recalled. “We’ve been responding to requests from those countries, on a case-by-case basis, but now we want to do so with a plan that corresponds to a strategic logic, with a portfolio of capabilities, of services, that we can make available to other countries,” he said. Rivera’s visit to Washington, his first since becoming defense minister, is taking place as the U.S. Congress and the White House are launching a fierce debate about the 2011 budget. Colombia is the region’s largest recipient of U.S. security assistance, with more than six billion dollars received since Plan Colombia was activated in 2000. The Central American countries, however, suffering under an unprecedented wave of violence, are also demanding more aid from the United States for a regional plan. Mexico, for its part, signed the Mérida Initiative four years ago, for which Washington has budgeted around 1.3 billion dollars. Rivera characterized his meeting with Gates as “very warm,” although he nonetheless conveyed to Gates his “concern” about a possible cut in funds for Colombia. “I believe that it’s a shared aspiration that all this cooperation can be maintained with a more creative, more prolific dialogue, not only in our country but throughout the region,” he explained.
