HB18-1285 - Remuneration-exempt Disability Parking Placard

Concerning parking for people with certain disabilities, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.

The bill creates a remuneration-exempt identifying placard that exempts an individual with a disability from paying for parking if the disability limits the individual's:

  • Fine motor control in both hands;
  • Ability to reach a height of 48 inches from the ground due to lack of finger, hand, or upper extremity strength or mobility; or
  • Ability to reach or access a parking meter due to the use of a wheelchair or other ambulatory device.

The bill repeals existing authority for a person with a disability to park without paying.

The bill appropriates $9,870 to the department of revenue from the general fund for use by the division of motor vehicles to order license plates to implement the act.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
