AAMVA Best Practices Guide in Deterring and Detecting Fraud and Misuse

The Best Practices Guide assists motor vehicle departments in improving the issuance of disability placards and plates, the deterrence and detection of fraud in these areas, and the enforcement of disability parking violations. The intent is not to identify the one approach that all jurisdictions should follow but rather to serve as a starting point for an informed local discussion on how best to marry needs for accessible parking with needs for general parking. 

The Best Practices Guide provides guidance in the following areas; Fraud identification, issuance and renewal processes, product standards, medical issues and requirements, outreach and education, enforcement strategies, and legislation, case law, and legal challenges.

This publication resulted from a cooperative agreement between the U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA).

Automakers Must Deliver on the Promise of Self-Driving Car Technology

When I bought my most recent car — a 2014 Chrysler Town and Country —the salesman walked me through the list of available upgrades.

Draft Legislation – Tiered Parking Meter Exemption

Currently disability parking permits provide a parking meter fee exemption. By law it is 2.5 hours or the maximum time the meter allows, whichever is longer. Some permittees cannot reach or operate a meter due to a disability. By making it apply to all permittees, it created an incentive for people to fraudulently obtain or use permits belonging to someone else. The bill restricts the exemption to those who are medically certified to be unable to reach or operate a parking meter due to a disability. The bill did not pass this last legislative session, but DCAB intends to reintroduce it.
