    Default Can A Person Park In A Private Lot's Handicap Spot With A Handicap Placard?

    Can a person park in a private lot's handicapp spot with a handicapp placard?

    The apartment across the street from mine has a private parking lot but it has a basic handicapp spot in it. Is it legal for me to park in that spot or will I get towed? I am disabled and I have a placard.


    The spots generally require a residential permit that I dont own. Does anyone else know the specifics about handicap parking pass limitations?

    The "law" does not distinguish property venues. As long as you have the placard, you have not broken the "handicap" notice.

    However, if it is a private lot for renters and thier visitors, it is just that, as you readily point out about the residential parking permit.

    "Technically" it is a trespass, so I would not make a habit out of it.

    Ask express permission before hand to park there from time to time.

    Yep. All it means is that you would not be in violation of your un-named state's handicapped parking statutes ... though you might be subject to penalties and tows for parking on private property where you do not have a right to be.
