Abstract
Unfortunately, forgery is becoming even more common in our world. Everyday, crooks forge money, identification cards, documents, drivers licenses, and even forge handicapped parking placards. This problem has gone too far. As a response to this problem, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is currently seeking alternative ways to create a handicapped parking placard that is difficult to forge. This new technology and/or concept would maximize police ability to control forged handicapped parking placards, and for the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to distribute the new placards, as well as modifying the existing ones. As a response to the above mentioned drawbacks, Mainstream is proposing an innovative sensor technology capable of instantly detecting forged handicapped parking placards. This proposed technology uses florescent dyes on the placard as a visual detection tool.
