Accessible parking permits shall not be altered or defaced in any way. Photocopied or reproduced copies (by any means) are not valid. Persons using copied, altered or fraudulently obtained permits may be charged under the Highway Traffic Act.
Accessible parking permits are issued to the individual with the disability; the permit privileges are not transferable. The permit is not valid when displayed on a vehicle and the vehicle is not being used to pick up or transport the holder of the permit. If someone is using your permit to park in an accessible parking space when you are not present a parking ticket may be issued for parking in the space without a valid permit and he or she is subject to being charged under the Highway Traffic Act.
The permit may be retained for misuse and may not be returned to the permit holder. The permit holder would be required to re-apply to Service Ontario for a new permit only after the court case is completed.
For more information on Accessible Parking Permits please refer to the Ontario Highway Traffic Act and the Revised Regulations of Ontario 1990, Reg. 581.
