If you have a chronic illness like arthritis or lung disease that makes it
painful or difficult to walk, you might qualify for a handicapped parking
permit. Ask your doctor about eligibility. People with limited mobility can
save time, energy, and frustration when they park in handicapped parking spots
near the entrances to businesses.
Each state has its own forms and criteria for handicapped parking permits.
Typically, the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) runs the program.
