Parking with a Disabled Placard
With a properly displayed disabled placard or disabled license plate (including one issued by a different state or country) you may park in any of the following zones, so long as the person to whom the placard is issued is being transported:
- Blue zones
- General metered parking zones without paying
- Green zones
- Residential Permit Parking areas
- Areas with posted time limits (e.g. a one-hour zone in a business district)
However, a disabled placard does not allow you to park in the following times or places:
- No-parking, no-stopping or other red zones
- During street-cleaning hours
- During posted commercial loading hours (look for signs, yellow curb, or yellow or red meters)
- During posted passenger loading hours (look for signs or white curb)
- During posted commuter tow-away hours (check for tow-away signs within 100 feet in both directions of a parking space)
- For more than 72 hours in any space.
A disabled placard does NOT exempt the vehicle from all other citation and/or tow-away rules and restrictions.
