Disability parking placards are only issued through the Michigan Secretary of State Office. Parking Services does NOT issue disability parking placards.
If you have a disability parking placard or license plate:
- You must either be the driver or a passenger of the vehicle to park in a disability parking “blue space.”
- Don’t park on the blue striped lines needed by vans with wheelchair lifts.
- Disability parking anywhere in the U.S. is available to you.
- Hang the placard from the rearview mirror. (Remove when driving.)
It is against the law to:
- Loan your disability placard to another person.
- Knowingly use a disability placard that has been canceled or replaced.
- Use a disability placard or plate when the disability no longer exists.
- Use the disability placard or license plate of a deceased family member.
- Copy, alter or forge a disability placard or license plate.
Report violations to the OUPD. Penalties may include fines as high as $500 and up to 30 days in jail.
