A handicap placard is available to applicants who submit a doctor's note to the proper authorities attesting to a disability such as lost use of a limb, need for a wheelchair, poor vision, or conditions that make it difficult to walk long distances. These placards are required to be displayed if you are parking in reserved handicap parking spaces. The placards are valid for many years, in which time weather conditions and use can make them brittle and unusable. Keep a handicap placard protected and in good shape by making a clear sleeve placard holder. For the full instructions click here.
