‘This Is A Game Changer’: Purple Placard To Help Struggling, Disabled Drivers

DENVER (CBS4) — Colorado drivers with a purple placard have not been required to pay parking meters this year.

After hundreds of hours of Hinds’ research, former Gov. John Hickenlooper signed the Chris Hinds Act into law in 2018.
