Florida

Florida

Florida has a Parking Permit scheme administered by the Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles


Parking spaces

 

Those reserved for a Parking Permit holder are marked with the wheelchair symbol.

 

Do not park if the space is marked with someone's name or a licence plate number.

 

Do not park on the striped area adjacent to a disabled person parking space – it is there to allow a wheelchair user access to and from the vehicle.

 

Where you may use your Parking Permit

 

Florida Parking Permit holder

You may use your Parking Permit in most states of the USA, and in many other countries around the world.
