PCPD to enforce handicapped parking

Ponca City Now - April 25, 2016 3:49 pm

The Ponca City Police Department, with the help of the Extra Eyes Police Volunteer program, has begun an enforcement project aimed at those who choose to illegally park in spaces allocated for people with physical disabilities.

Citations will be written when a vehicle is found parked in a properly marked parking space, designated for those with physical disabilities, and no placard or proper license plate is visible.

Ponca City Police encourage all citizens to comply with the law as it pertains to parking in these designated spaces. The Oklahoma State Statute on Special Parking Privileges for Physically Disabled Persons is in Title 47 Section 15-111. “Not only is it illegal to park in a space designated for physically disabled persons without the proper placard or license plate, but it makes it difficult or even impossible for disabled people to access services and businesses that they need.”
