Handicap Parking Invention Relieves Pain, Frustration

Disabled drivers can finally relax when parking in handicap spaces, thanks to The Placard Hanger, LLCs new invention that alleviates the pain and frustration of hanging a handicap parking placard on the rearview mirror.
Many disabled drivers who own a handicap placard experience aggravation and difficulty when trying to display and remove it from their rearview mirror. The mirror arm these tags hang from cannot be seen from the drivers seat, so drivers are forced to stretch, lean over and twist in ways that can be awkward and painful, just to hang their permit.
To avoid this, many handicapped drivers leave their placard hanging from the rearview even when they are driving; a moving violation almost everywhere in the U.S. and Canada.
Enter Arthur Brower, 75, a disabled veteran from North Ft. Myers, FL, who decided that he had had enough of the pain and invented a little device that immediately eliminated all of his discomfort.
When asked about his invention Brower said, I had shoulder surgery that made it nearly impossible for me to reach up and hang my handicap placard from the rearview. I used to just leave it up all the time, even when I was driving, and saw many other disabled drivers doing the same thing. Then I found out that most states consider this dangerous and technically define it as an obstruction of view, which it really is. Turns out it is a citable traffic offense with fines ranging from $50 to $250. I felt there had to be a better way
According to Brower, now founder and CEO of The Placard Hanger, LLC, he originally only made one placard hanger for his own use But then all my disabled friends wanted one, and then their friends. It just caught on. So I applied for a patent and now disabled drivers everywhere can get some relief
Simply called The Placard Hanger, the product is a small, compact device that makes the process of displaying and removing a handicap parking permit effortless, while simultaneously removing the risk of driving dangerously and illegally with an obstructed view of the road.
