Black Friday always guarantees mega deals, long lines, and very few parking spaces.

But be sure not to illegally park in a disabled parking slot as officials are cracking down this year.

Secretary of State Jesse White has directed officers to patrol shopping parking lots on Black Friday.

The fine for parking in an accessible parking space without a parking tag or disability license plate can be as much $350.

The fine for illegally using a disability license plate or tag without the authorized holder present is a maximum of $500.
