Handicapped License Plates
Handicapped License Plates are generally administered by the Department of Motor Vehicles within each state. Each state manages their program, application process and renewal requirements. The following is a list of some of the general guidelines for Handicapped License Plates – note that this list will vary state by state:

* Such individuals must obtain a statement or prescription from a physician or podiatrist.

People with such identification can park for free at public metered spaces.

* Provides penalties for making, selling, or possessing fraudulent parking placards.
