Ask HPD: Wrongly Parking in a Handicapped Stall

Question: If someone parks in a handicapped stall with a placard, how do you know if the person is really disabled? What is the penalty for wrongly parking in a handicapped stall?

Answer: Anyone who parks in a spot reserved for persons with disabilities must display a permit (a placard or special plates) on the vehicle. The person must also carry the identification card when using the permit. If the user of the permit fails to present the ID card, a citation will be issued and the permit will be confiscated. Anyone caught wrongly parking in a stall reserved for persons with disabilities can be cited. The fine for both citations is $260.
