KNBC-Chanel 4's Joel Grover, the investigative reporter who makes officials cringe when he calls, was looking for parking in downtown LA a while ago, and noticed that almost every meter was taken by a car with a disabled parking placard hanging from the rear view mirror. Intrigued and angered, he set up a sting, and tells Off-Ramp's John Rabe what he found. COME INSIDE for links to Joel's story and Off-Ramp's previous efforts to publicize this problem.
