Accessible Parking Coalition Publishes Free, 24-page Guide to Address Growing Challenges of Parking for People with Disabilities

ALEXANDRIA, VA — Making parking accessible for people with mobility disabilities, deterring and detecting disabled placard/plate abuse, and complying with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards have been complex issues for a long time—and the challenges are growing more complicated with an aging population.

A new, downloadable, 24-page guide, “Let’s Make Accessible Parking More Accessible: A Practical Guide to Addressing Disabled Placard Abuse and Other Parking Issues for People with Disabilities,” offered at no charge by the International Parking & Mobility Institute (IPMI)-led Accessible Parking Coalition, provides a roadmap for parking and mobility professionals, elected officials, urban planners and other decision-makers.

Semi-Annual Reminder RE: Disabled Parking Space Use–Notice

We send this notice campus-wide twice per year to help educate about the need to save accessible parking spaces for customers authorized to use them. At times, we send it in advance of enforcement events where we partner with campus police to target enforcement in areas that tend to be more problematic. We also deploy temporary signs moved from area to area to help raise awareness.
