Regulations for Handicapped Parking
Parking in a Handicapped Space for "Just a Minute..."
...is 60 seconds too long!
Use of handicapped spaces requires the proper display of a valid, state issued permit. Handicapped license plates or a placard are required.
NEVER park in a space reserved for people with disabilities UNLESS you have a permit, placard or handicapped parking plates. It's the law.
REMEMBER: Do not park in the striped access aisles next to spaces reserved for people with disabilities even if you have a permit or plates. Access aisles provide room for wheelchair users to transfer safely to and from their vehicles.
