Reserved parking for people with disabilities ensures safe and equal access to goods and services, access which most of us take for granted. This publication explains the rules that businesses and all drivers should observe about reserved parking spaces. It also presents information on how to obtain license plates and parking permits that allow individuals with severe disabilities to use specially-marked parking spots.
Reserved parking for people with disabilities is a legal requirement, not just a courtesy. You can help support the law by parking in reserved spaces only if you have a permit or plates for people with disabilities, and only when the person who received the permit or plates is actually in the vehicle. Please avoid parking in the access aisle or striped area next to a reserved parking space - it is not a parking zone. This special area is needed for access by people who use wheelchairs and specially-equipped vehicles.
It is important to respect each other. Please, be parking considerate.
A qualifying disability is one or more of the following impairments, disabilities or conditions that are both permanent in nature and affect mobility:
A Temporary Parking Permit, valid for six months, may be issued when a person has a temporarily disabling condition that makes the person unable to walk without a cane, crutches, a walker or other assisting device. To apply for a temporary permit, you must present the same proof of disability as required for a permanent permit. The temporary permit will allow the same access to reserved parking spaces. If you have a temporary parking permit that is due to expire, and you still have a qualifying disability, you must obtain a new medical certification before you can apply for another parking permit.
You may provide one of these proofs of disability:
It is a misdemeanor under the NYS Penal Law (Section 210.45) to make a false statement or provide misinformation to obtain a parking permit for a person with a disability, and is punishable by fines from $250 to $1,000. Additional civil penalties from $250 to $1,000 may also be imposed under Section 1203-a (4) of the Vehicle and Traffic Law. These penalties also apply to doctors providing certifications, as well as applicants.
The Department of Motor Vehicles issues license plates for people with permanent disabilities for use on passenger cars, motorcycles, vans, and pickup trucks not used for commercial purposes. You do not have to be a resident of New York State or even a licensed driver to obtain the license plates, but you must be at least 16 years old to register a vehicle. License plates with the International Symbol of Access are only issued for a vehicle registered in the name of the person who has the disability, and each individual with a disability may have only one set of license plates. If you cannot register the vehicle in the name of the disabled person, refer to the section on Parking Permits. You may apply at any state or county motor vehicle office for a second set of license plates for another family member who also has a disability. In addition to providing the documentation for registering the vehicle, you also must provide the family member's driver license, proof of disability and a completed Application for License Plates and Parking Permits for People With Severe Disabilities (MV 664.1). Personalized license plates (up to six characters) with the International Symbol of Access are available for an additional charge.
Please contact: The DMV Custom Plates Office, 6 Empire State Plaza, Albany, NY 12228 or call 1-518-402-4838
Any vehicle that has a license plate or valid permit displaying the International Symbol of Access may use parking spaces designated for use by a person with a disability. The person to whom the license plate or permit was issued must be traveling in the vehicle in order to use these spaces.
Plates and permits do not allow you to disobey state or local parking regulations. They also do not exempt you from parking fees unless a locality has adopted an ordinance to that effect. The fine for illegally parking in a space reserved for people with disabilities is $50 to $150, plus a mandatory $30 surcharge.
It is a serious misuse of license plates and permits for the disabled when someone other than the person with a disability uses the plates or permit to park in a space reserved for people with disabilities. These license plates or parking permits are valid only when the person with a disability who received the plates or permit is driving the vehicle or is a passenger in it. If you misuse plates or a parking permit or allow someone else to use them, the DMV may revoke the license plates or the locality that issued the permit may revoke the permit, or they may deny renewal.
Apply for plates or a permit for people with disabilities only if you have a qualifying disability.
