Re "Service dog fraud finds some humans behaving badly" (Viewpoints, Aug. 5): No proof of need for nor training of a service dog required. In fact, it is against the law to request need or proof. Yet, handicapped placard holders must have a form filled out by a doctor to submit to the DMV.
The license and placard receipt must be issued to the same person, and the receipt must be available upon request of law enforcement. The numbers on the placard and receipt must match. The disability for which the placard has been issued is not revealed. Much of the fraud would end if the Americans with Disabilities Act treated its protected groups equally.
