Handicapped Parking Abuse: What Would You Do?

After a few minutes of silent deliberation, he walked away from the scene without saying or doing anything. Later, Martins said, "Unfortunately, I should have done something there but, I was kind of hoping also that it would resolve itself, which apparently it did not."

Pattie Friend didn't need to see our handicapped actress in distress in order to step forward and say something to the rude girls. She boldly walked right up to the actresses and told them, "You're going to have to move out of that parking place. ... I'm calling the police right now."

She told ABC News that she fights for handicapped rights on a daily basis, even though she has "been spit at and had coffee thrown at me."

Friend takes this cause very personally because her husband is disabled and feels the need to speak up as "disabled people deserve a right to go out into this world, too."

Overall, more than 700 people passed by the experiment and their reactions were fascinating and unexpected.

Our handicapped actress, who deals with this situation on a daily basis, told us that she was pleasantly surprised by "how many people would stop and help out."
