My Handicap Placard is Red! Oooo, I feel special! Seriously, I did get one via the mail. I printed out the application online (it is only 1 page), filled it out and took it in to my pcp office. I left it with him for a day or two, picked it up and then mailed in with my $6.00 check.
(oh, yeah, I made a copy just in case) My doc marked the 6month 'box'. I think I received it within a couple weeks. I just remember it really didn't take all that long. I did not go to the DMV office because the lines are ridiculous around here. I'm in Los Angeles.
If you all have a good relationship with any of your docs, they can sign off the application for you. I am really glad I went ahead and did it. It sure has come in handy (lol, get it, handi?) especially at the grocery store and some of my doc visits, big old medical bldgs.
I say, GO FOR IT!
