The only thing better is a handicap motorcycle plate.

Apparently, he was doing nothing illegal. Trailers in the UK are not licensed separately from the vehicle towing them; the whole thing has one set of plates, back and front, so, for example, a car towing a caravan has a duplicate of the rear plate for the car on the caravan. If a semi swaps trailers, I suppose they move the trailer's tags as well. How that works if the towing vehicle is not licensed (as in this case), I have no idea.

BD, that's unlikely, but not impossible, especially with electric starters. Maybe the rider has dodgy knees or busted-up ankles.

Gotta love also the people who have a handicap hangar or plate and then run at full speed in the rain to the store entrance while jumping out of a Hummer or truck you almost need a ladder to get in and out of.

@BD- I have a theory that the people who park illegaly in handicap spots also have road rage. The 'Me First' attitude. I have an idea which could go viral.

~~Needed:
-Mixed marshal artist dressed as an old lady who needs a stroller.
-Off duty police officer that can make an arrest.
-Yes more><

Scenario: A suspected (could be) road rage parks in the handycap space. When he[she] gets back and into his{her} car, we have a family van pull up behind and unload the kids. This can take 3 minutes?
Just as they pull away, the dodderling old lady drops her key & Etc. and takes 5 minutes.
#`#.At this point it could get viollent, so no don't!

I know two one-legged motorcyclists. You can get a handicap motorcycle plate in Massachusetts....

I did see a motorcycle equipped to allow a driver in a wheel chair to drive it. It was a trike of course, with had controls and a loading ramp in the back.

Live in Lake Havasu City AZ and there is nothing (in the way of vehicles that would surprise me here.
