I have a handicap placard or plate, do I need a residential permit?


A handicap placard by Florida State Statute allows vehicles transporting a disabled person to park in a handicapped space or park at a municipal metered area for four (4) hours without paying. All other parking regulations need to be observed, including "Residential" permits. If you do not otherwise qualify for the Residential permit, the handicap placard or plate does not qualify you.
