Volunteers target disability parking violators across Statesboro
Parking-M. Bullock 2 W
Magina Bullock is authorized by the city to issue civil citations for disabilities parking violations.
Issues over the use of parking spaces for people with disabilities became more noticeable during the Christmas season, say two volunteers who - in different ways - have been reminding Statesboro drivers of the law. Magina Bullock, who has used a wheelchair since a 1994 domestic shooting left her unable to walk, was designated by the city of Statesboro in 1996 as a citizen volunteer empowered to enforce the state law on disability parking. Since the death in 2005 of Martin Holzman, who shared that authorization, Bullock is the only person, other than actual police officers, so empowered in StatesboroOver the years, she has seen fewer people without disability parking permits blatantly parking in the designated spaces.
