Disabled Parking

A vehicle displaying a valid state disability placard or disability plate may park at designated public disabled spaces or any meter while paying the appropriate meter fee.  Only State of Illinois issued Meter-Exempt placards (yellow and gray striped), issued by the State of Illinois to persons with permanent disabilities who have a significant impairment causing difficulty accessing a parking meter, are exempt from meter payment.  These placard exempt the authorized holder from payment of parking meter fees and time limitations, except at meters or signs with time limitations of 30 minutes or less. All other State of Illinois and out of state disability permits, permanent or temporary, DO NOT exempt authorized holders from payment of parking fees or time limitations.
