(UNDATED) - A state law that took effect last week doubles Indiana's fines for motorists who illegally park in parking spaces for the disabled.

But some seniors and residents with disabilities or health conditions who rely on the parking spaces question if the higher fines are enough to keep able-bodied people from using the spots.

The new law boosts the minimum fine for parking in a disabled spot without a permit from $50 to $100.

Lafayette native Linda Juarez tells the Journal & Courier she's skeptical about the impact the increased fines will have on people who illegally parking in the spots.

She says the new law's higher fines likely escaped the notice of most Hoosier drivers. Juarez recently received her disabled parking permit because of cardiovascular issues.
