DMV Investigators Cite 109 Disabled Parking Placard Abusers

SACRAMENTO – When California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) investigators set up enforcement operations targeting those who use Disabled Persons Parking Placards (DPPP) illegally, they often receive big cheers from those who have real health or mobility issues and depend on DPPPs for more convenient parking at offices, stores and other destinations.

“Those who use these placards illegally are not only insensitive, they are breaking the law and are cited and fined accordingly,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelna.  “In addition, DMV investigators seize the placard that’s being misused.  You can’t use a friend or relative’s DPPP, unless that friend or relative is in your vehicle with you.”

In October 2018, DMV investigators conducted 21 DPPP enforcement operations throughout California, citing 109 people caught misusing the placard.

The fine associated with the illegal use of a DPPP rangers from $250 to $1,000.

Anyone who suspects a person might be misusing a disabled person placard can report it using an online complaint form or by contacting a local DMV Investigations office. Submissions are confidential.
