    How are senior citizens with mobility difficulties an outlier? Are senior citizens in your country a minority or are they all joggers?

      He’s saying she should have a tag that hangs on the rear view mirror that can be put on your car when you drive her around (as opposed to a handicap license plate that can only be used with her car).

        In my country only the car owner can apply for a disability permit. I’m the car owner, she doesn’t even have a driver’s license.

          May I ask what country? Yes, the person who needs the placard applies for it, but in most places that can go on whatever car they ride in, so long as they’re actually in the car.

          In my country a disabled person can get a tag that they hang in whatever car they are in to mark that car as able to use a handicapped space - they are expected to switch that tag between cars when they get a ride with someone else.

          If the handicapped person owns a car they can also get a special license plate on their car thus ensuring they don’t have to keep track of that tag.
