Any person certified by an authorized health care specialist as having a permanent disability is eligible for disabled parking license plates. By legal definition, this includes any person who:
Cannot walk 200 feet or more without stopping to rest.
Cannot walk without the use of, or assistance from, another person or brace, cane, crutch, prosthetic device, wheelchair or other assistance device.
Is restricted by lung disease to the extent that forced expiratory volume for one second when measured by spirometry is less than one liter or the arterial oxygen tension is less than 60 mm/hg on room air at rest.
Uses portable oxygen.
Has a cardiac condition to the extent that functional limitations are classified in severity as class III or IV, according to standards accepted by the American Heart Association.
Is severely limited in the ability to walk due to an arthritic, neurological or orthopedic condition.
If the disability that qualifies you for disabled parking privileges is a result of an injury incurred while in active U.S. Military service, you may apply for disabled veteran license plates. Disabled veteran license plates provide the same parking privileges as disabled parking license plates.
