United States of America

Welcome to the USA section of the FIA Guide for the disabled traveller. Read this page, and then click on the country you intend to visit


Whether or not your Parking Permit (usually referred to as a Placard in the USA) will be recognised depends on where you are from:


Are you from another USA state? If so, almost all USA states will recognise your Parking Placard.


Are you from another country? If so, some USA states will recognise your Parking Permit but others may not. This is explained under the heading "Where you may use your Parking Permit".


"You may use your Parking Permit in" means that reciprocity has been confirmed by a state official, or from our review of state legislation.


"We currently have no information whether or not you may use your Parking Permit in" means we have been unable to get information on reciprocity - you should ask locally before you park.


"You may not use your Parking Permit in ­­" – means we have been informed that it will not be recognised and you are not eligible to the parking concessions shown in the Guide


What you should always do:

  • Check the entry in the Guide.

  • Check locally by asking if your Parking Permit will be recognised - local people, police and parking officials will want to help you so do not be afraid to ask.

  • If you are satisfied your Parking Permit can be used, display next to it the print-out notice to explain to police and parking officials your right to park, and where they may find more information.

Always - ask locally, park sensibly and safely, obey the rules, enjoy your visit!
