Parking a Scooter? Try a Space for the Handicapped

Scooter parking for the handicapped?  Probably not.  The series of symbols on the sign--above: no parking, below: parking/handicapped--likely were designed to suggest that the small space to the left of the yellow line was to remain empty to allow sufficient space for the handicapped driver of an automobile.  The photo was taken at Tor Vergata, a new campus of the University of Rome, far from the centro, where parking appeared to be ample by Roman standards.  Apparently the driver of this scooter couldn't resist.  Bill
