INDIANAPOLIS - An Indianapolis mother-to-be was speaking out about what she called rude and shameful behavior.
She said employees at her west-side office building are disregarding signs that reserve parking spaces for expectant mothers and the disabled.
Beth Bisson said she is thankful to the managers of the parking lot, but is surprised that so many people ignore the signs.
Bisson works for Rolls-Royce and said she needs the reserved parking more and more as her pregnancy progresses.
"Lately I've been having a lot of pain in my hips and my back, and it is very difficult, and you can see me waddling up to the building," Bisson said.
Bisson said the expectant mother spots and handicap spots are usually the first ones to go.
"It's so rude, I mean I just can't believe it. I mean maybe if you're running late one day or something, but some of these people do it every day and have no shame about it," Bisson said.
Bisson has asked management to help clear the spaces for expectant mothers or anyone who has trouble walking. But Bisson said it took written citations for some people to honor the reserved parking spots.
"You can see other expectant mothers and handicapped people who can't find spots, and for them to blatantly disregard that is just shameful and I just can't believe it," Bisson said.
Bisson said once airport police cited drivers for illegally parking in handicap spaces, those same people started parking in the expectant mother spaces.
