Drivers Are Reminded Of The Rules For Getting Disability Plates And Placards By The ADOT.

The Motor Vehicle Division of the Arizona Department of Transportation alerted motorists that there are strict eligibility requirements for people with disabilities to receive license plates or placards.

The placard or plate that identifies the bearer as having a disability allows the bearer to park in designated areas reserved just for that person. To make use of a disabled parking place, the vehicle's occupants must include a person with a disability. The individual with the handicap must own or lease the car on which the disability plates are displayed.

People in Arizona, both children and adults cannot walk 200 feet without stopping, according to Jennifer Bowser Richards, MVD Stakeholder Relations Manager, "because of medical conditions," she added. As long as a licensed health expert verifies that the individual's reduced mobility meets the eligibility conditions, they may be eligible for an accessible parking placard."

Additionally, she noted, "In many places, there are special parking spaces for vehicles which display a License Plate or Handicap Parking Placard." Vehicles that carry a legitimate license plate or placard bearing the International emblem of access for disabled people can only use parking areas marked with this symbol if they carry the individual who was issued a permit or plate. Anyone else parking in these places is breaking the law and could be subject to a fine.

To make use of a disabled parking place, the vehicle's occupants must include a person with a disability. The individual with the handicap must own or lease the car on which the disability plates are displayed.

Any vehicle transporting the disabled person and displaying a Disability Placard can park in the designated areas if the placard is also displayed on the vehicle. Re-certification is not necessary to replace the long-term disability placard as of October 28, 2018. A new certification from an authorized physician is required every six months for temporary disability placards.

Disabled parking badges or license plates may also be available to NGOs that provide transportation for the disabled.

To obtain handicap plates or placards, the applicant's parents or legal guardians must sign and certify that the minor is their legal guardian.
