No non-handicapped operator of a motor vehicle shall park such vehicle in a parking space which has been clearly marked by a sign as being reserved for the handicapped at any privately owned parking area or on public property, except when transporting a handicapped person. A summons for such offense may be issued by any deputy of the Sheriff's Office.
   As used in this section, “handicapped person” means a person with any physical disability which limits such person's mobility to a substantial degree, including all persons who have been issued special license plates or placards by the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles pursuant to Section 46.2-731, 46.2-739 or 46.2-1241 of the Code of Virginia, as amended. All other persons shall be considered non-handicapped.
