A daughter shared her mother's perfect response to drivers who block handicap spots.

There are some people who truly don't care about anyone but themselves. They refuse to take accountability or accept any blame for their part in a selfish situation, just like this one dude who got called out on social media.

These striped lines are located next to a handicapped spot and offer wheelchair users room to enter or exit a vehicle.

In a viral video, TikTok user @kathryngranger15 said she couldn't get out of her car because a truck illegally parked in the striped crosshatch area next to a handicap parking spot and blocked her access to a curb ramp.

Read on for the whole story, and stick around to hear what the internet has to say.

For context, Kathryn uses a wheelchair because of a spinal cord injury, and sadly, the truck blocked her only access to enter the bar. Luckily, her mom — a handicap enforcement officer — came to the rescue, pulled out a handicap parking warning sticker, and placed it on the truck's driver-side window.

The sticker reminds the driver that it's illegal to park in the yellow lines either side of a disabled parking spot.

If you're wondering, the bright orange sticker read, "It is illegal for anyone, with or without a handicap designation, to block access areas or ramps. The van access area is the striped area next to a handicap parking space."

While the first driver seemed to learn his lesson, another white truck later repeated the same mistake.

In a follow-up video, Kathryn revealed that the guy left (not before ripping up the sticker and tossing it on the ground) but a new person showed up and parked their white truck in the crosshatch area. She tried to get off the sidewalk, but unfortunately, she couldn't because the truck was blocking the access area and curb ramp.

So Kathryn's mother did the same thing.

In the end, Kathryn's mother grabbed another sticker and placed it on the white truck's driver-side window.

"Don't block access, people!" Kathryn concluded.

Speaking of the stickers, several TikTok users wondered how Kathryn's mother got them because they are interested in buying them. In another video, Kathryn explained that since her mom is a handicap enforcement officer, the police department gave them to her. However, Kathryn pointed out that you can purchase them on Amazon.
