Can I use my vehicle's handicapped tag when the handicapped family member is not in the vehicle when I park?

I read a story in this morning’s paper where a woman said she used the handicapped tag she has because of her husband’s disability, to park in a handicapped spot. She was not handicapped and her husband was not in the car with her nor was any other handicapped person. Is that considered fraud, punishable by a fine and/or towing?

Please provide any links you have to support your reply.
