Handicap Parking at Meters

Disabled persons interested in parking should phone the Parking Authority and ask for Capt. Taylor regarding city-wide handicap parking or Cheryl regarding residential handicap parking.

New Jersey Handicapped Parking Laws – in part:

Prohibit the issuance of penalties for overtime parking in one location for up to 24 hours, when the person to whom the issued placard or license plate is either the driver or passenger of the motor vehicle (C.39:4-207). When parking at a metered space, 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.
