Crackdown on fake handicapped parking permits
Fairfield police are cracking down on people misusing or even making up fake handicapped parking permits.
Police say they've confiscated several fake permits from the Fairfield train station parking lot. They say suspects are using a computer to print the bogus permits on special paper.
Some of the fake permits have expiration dates that have been doctored, police say. In other cases, suspects will illegally use a lifetime permit that belonged to a deceased family member.
Police warn anyone caught using a doctored permit will be ticketed more than $200. And anyone caught creating a permit on the computer will be charged with a felony, and could face a year in jail.
