When you say a VAN spot, has Texas now gone one stage further than the red/blue placards?
Or are you meaning that people are parking in the spots without a placard at all?

Which one of your boys is having surgery? Is it spinal fusion? Not trying to be nosey but I want to include him in my prayers tonight. My son had spinal fusion when he was almost 13. I totally understand how you are feeling today and my heart goes out to you. If you want to talk more shoot me an email.
