NORWALK, Conn. -- Norwalk police will be paying extra attention to people parking in handicapped parking spaces and will issue tickets to violators.
Police are reminding residents that parking in designated handicapped parking spaces is reserved for those who have been issued a Handicapped Parking Permit by the Department of Motor Vehicles. The handicapped person must be arriving in or departing with the parked vehicle, and the windshield placard must be properly displayed from the rearview mirror.
Norwalk's current violation fine for parking in a handicapped space is $200.
"Please help us assure that the disabled have the necessary handicapped parking spaces available," police said.
