Disability Parking Zones

Minneapolis Traffic & Parking Services installs Disability Parking Signs. Disability Parking Zones are not exclusive to any resident or property owner. Any vehicle with Disability License Plates or displaying a Disability Certificate may park in the signed space.


Traffic & Parking Services will install Disability Parking Signs in front of your property if you, or a relative living with you, have current Disability License Plates or a Disability Certificate (Hanging Tag).

Disability Parking Signs are installed at the request of property owners. If you rent, you must get the signature of the property owner to have Disability Parking Signs installed.


Disability Parking Signs can be installed for commercial businesses or institutions, in front of their property, if a business owner, or their employees, or patrons, possess a current Disability Plate or Disability Certificate (Hanging Tag).
