Disabled Parking Placard Enforcement Catches 129 Abusers in January

March 2, 2019

 

Sacramento – Investigators with the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) caught 129 people misusing disabled person parking placards during 19 enforcement operations in January. Offenders had their placard confiscated and face fines that range from $250 to $1,000.  

Since July 1, 2018, DMV investigators have verified 11,907 disabled person parking placards and found 1,142 being misused. 

The DMV holds as many as 24 enforcement operations each month throughout the state targeted at curbing disabled person parking placard abuse. 

 

*Drivers Contacted is the number of people DMV investigators contacted in order to verify their disabled person parking placard. Anyone who suspects a person might be misusing a disabled person placard is urged to report it using an online complaint form or by contacting a local DMV Investigations office. Submissions are confidential. It is important to note that some qualifying disabilities are not visually apparent and allegations of misuse might be unfounded.
