Is it legal in the state of Arizona for a Hospital to park a trailer in a handicap parking stall?
On Nov 28 at 3:30am I parked my truck in a handicap parking spot in the Payson Hospital ER parking area because I had chest pains. Within 30 minutes I was airlifted to the Arizona Heart Hospital because I was having a heart attack (my 2nd in a month).
When I arrived back in Payson on Friday Nov 30 at 10:30pm I found that my truck had been towed by the Payson hospital while I was at the Arizona Heart Hospital so that the Payson hospital could park an imaging trailer in the handicap spots.
I am not 100% sure but I think this violates state handicap laws.
