    Police won't come to enforce it. Dr's give away passes like candy. People don't care. If they moved the gimp parking to the middle or far end of parking lot that would fix it. I did it in a little...

    Look at RED wrist guards for snow boarding. I'm not a quad, but have used them when I injured my wrist. A lot cheaper than med equipment. Burton and REI also sell some.
