ADA Parking

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) parking regulations are found at the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission website: www.nj.gov/mvc/pdf/Vehicles/DDS-guide.pdf.

When parking at a metered space or centralized payment area, a driver with a placard or handicapped license plate must put the appropriate amount of money in the meter. If the vehicle will occupy the space for more than the maximum amount that the meter holds, the driver must fill the meter to the maximum amount. This will permit the vehicle to occupy the space for up to 24 hours, and no further payment will be required during that time. A municipality may require the vehicle to vacate the space after 24 hours.
