New laws to combat handicap parking abuse

Posted by wlpo on December 30, 2013

Have you ever seen a driver with a disability placard and think it seemed fishy that they had one?  A few new state laws are geared at cutting down on people taking advantage of the system.

Any driver found to be misusing a disability parking placard will now pay a $600  fine instead of $500.  Also if the legit owner of a disability parking placard lets someone else use their permit, they can be fined $1000.

Beginning Wednesday, doctors or nurses who falsify a disability parking application, they can be fined $1000, double what the penalty is now.
