Misuse of Accessible Parking Permits
A valid BC Parking Permit for People with Disabilities, or other recognized disability exemption, is required to use an accessible parking space. Permits may only be used when the permit holder is in the vehicle and must be up to date. Otherwise, your vehicle will be ticketed and towed.
