Clarifying Disabled Parking


Clarifying Disabled Parking:
Senate Bill SB716 creates new requirements for disabled parking including:

Two disabled placards: one for wheelchair only, the other for anyone else with a disability that requires a parking accommodation.


  • The placards are issued through the DMV                             
  • The City of Portland is not enforcing the placard regulation in regards to on street parking  at this time.  A task force is looking at the issue.
  • The Cities volunteer enforcement group of retired police officers will be issuing citations in off street parking lots, including but not limited to hospitals, malls, shopping centers, restaurants
  • There have been some challenges with venue’s re-striping their lots and making all of the disabled spaces wheelchair only.  This is incorrect. According to the matrix of how the disabled spots are allocated, it is roughly one wheelchair only spot for every five disabled spots.
