In order to park in spaces designated for those with disabilities, you must display a handicapped parking permit or a disabled parking permit obtained from the Department of Transportation in the state in which you are licensed and your automobile is registered. There are two types of handicapped parking permits — those for temporary disability and those for permanent disability. If you have a disability permit that must be renewed, it must be done in the time period specified by the department to avoid being ticketed.
