  • Park for free for double the posted time in any metered spaces, or time-restricted spaces such as Residential Permit Parking (RPP) zones

Disability parking privileges DO NOT allow you to stop, stand, or park in the following areas:

  • Where parking is prohibited.
  • In spaces reserved for other special types of vehicles.
  • Where it would clearly present a traffic hazard.

NOTE: Parking privileges may vary by jurisdiction. Private parking facilities, such as airport parking lots, may restrict the time and parking for vehicles displaying disability parking placards or tags.
