Police Focus Efforts on Cars Illegally Parked in Disabled Spotshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/877Police 1/29/2020 1:00:00 AMhttps://youtu.be/ZFthdQ97iXwPolice Focus Efforts on Cars Illegally Parked in Disabled Spots<div class="ExternalClass77B0CC4A41414AD3B5D0C670FFB7FB02"><html> Gina Schuh has been wheelchair bound for 16 years.  She struggles with the lack of accessible parking.  <br><br>“Being an individual with a spinal cord injury, I do not sweat below my line of injury, therefore, I can't regulate hot temperatures" said Schuh in a video released to members of the Phoenix Police Department.  "Someone like myself and many other people with disabilities that cannot regulate temperature, can literally die from autonomic dysreflexia from being stuck outside too long. This is not just someone abusing a parking spot, this literally a matter of life and death during summer months."<br><br>It's not just people parking in the primary disable parking spot, but others who block the access aisles Schuh and others use to get in and out of their vehicles.  <br><br>In 2019, there was an increase in calls related to cars wrongly parked in disabled parking spaces and access aisles<br><br>To help combat the problem, the Phoenix Police Department, volunteers from the Accessibility Compliance Enforcement (ACE) and the Motorist Assist Program (MAP) will be out looking for disabled parking violators.  <br><br>The crackdown aims to remind drivers not park in disabled parking spaces, even if it's 'just for a few minutes.'   Those minutes can have a huge impact on many of our community members who are disabled and could leave you with fines of more than $1000.  <br><br>Schuh's plea to the community is to consider the impact when you park illegally.  "I cannot tell you the countless times I've been late to meetings, to school, to very important things like hot dates," Schuh said. </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideopolice

Visit <a href="https://staysafeonline.org/dpd20-live/" target="_blank">staysafeonline.org​</a> for live coverage starting at 11 a.m. MST and consider the following tips every day. <br><br> <div><strong>Know the Risks of Public Wifi. </strong>These days free, public wifi is available nearly everywhere. Unfortunately, where there is public wifi, there are potential hackers waiting to gain access to the data in your device. Safeguard your data by using a virtual private network (VPN) whenever connecting to public wifi. VPNs offer online privacy and anonymity by creating a private network from a public internet connection. </div> <div> <br> </div> <div><strong>Turn Off Built-In Cameras and Microphones.</strong> Data Privacy Day is a great reason to do a camera audit on your phone. Go to your settings, look at the apps on your phone, and disable specific ones from accessing your camera if it is not necessary. </div> <div> <br> </div> <div><strong>Check Your Privacy Settings</strong>. Privacy settings are just as important as locking the front door of your home! Ask yourself: Do you need to have your location turned on? Which apps have requested access to your camera? </div> <div> <br> </div> <div><strong>Update Device Software Regularly</strong>. Have you received another software update alert? One way to safeguard your personal data online is regularly updating the software on your devices. Among other things, software updates are released to address security issues when they occur. </div> <div> <br> </div> <div><strong>Enable Two-Factor Authentication.</strong> Add an extra layer of protection to your desktop and devices by enabling two-factor authentication. Requiring multiple verification to access your social media & financial accounts help to prevent unauthorized users from getting your data. </div> <div> <br>​<br></div> <p> <br> </p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/itsNewsinformation-technology-services
