Officials handed out 172 tickets for fraudulently using disabled parking placards during the Coachella and Stagecoach concerts. California Department of Motor Vehicles released in a report on 1st May.

The crackdown took place at the Empire Polo Club, which hosted the popular Coachella Music and Arts Festival. During the first weekend of Coachella (April 12-14), there were 44 citations. The second weekend (April 19-21) netted 50 citations. The operation marked the third year in a row officials have carried out similar crackdowns during the concerts.

Officials returned the following weekend, April 26 through April 28, during the Stagecoach concert, officials said. Officers issued 78 citations for improper use of disabled parking placards during the event. Nearly 2,500 parking placards were found to have been properly used, officials added.
Those cited face fines ranging from $250 to $1,000, as well as blemished on their driving records.

“It’s against the law to fraudulently use a disabled person parking placard. We will continue our enforcement efforts until people understand how their illegal actions are impeding the mobility of those with disabilities,” DMV Investigations Chief Tom Wilson said. “I’m asking every Californian to save the space.”

This year, authorities verified 2,459 placards by comparing the placard’s assignment number to its accompanying registration card and the individual’s identification.
