Handicapped Parking Policy

Handicapped Parking Parking spaces clearly marked with the blue lines are restricted to students, faculty, staff and visitors with disabilities, and those with temporary disabilities who are entitled to barrier-free access as specified in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and who have a DOT approved permit (i.e., tag, special plates). People with disabilities may apply for a handicapped parking sticker through his/her village or town of residence. This permit will be valid in specially designated Handicapped parking areas. All students must also have a LIU Post student parking sticker.

Students, faculty and staff who have a DOT approved permit are also asked to inform Public Safety about their DOT permit while registering their vehicle at LIU Post.

Students with medically verifiable disabilities, the nature of which does not qualify for Handicapped parking privileges, may apply for a Temporary Parking Permit at the Medical Services located in Life Science/Pall Hall. This permit is valid in Faculty/Staff parking areas and NON-HANDICAPPED spots only.

All vehicles are prohibited from parking in the blue-striped areas adjacent to parking spaces designated for individuals with disabilities.

Not all persons who need disabled parking need van accessible spaces. Whenever possible, please be mindful and use a standard accessible space. This will allow those who require the use of a designated van accessible space adequate access to those spaces.

Misuse of Parking Permits or Plates

It is a serious misuse of license plates and permits for the disabled when someone other than a person with a disability uses the plates and permits to park in a space reserved for people with disabilities. These plates and permits are valid only when the person with a disability who received the plates and permit is driving the vehicle or is a passenger in it.

If you misuse plates or a parking permit, or allow someone else to use them, the Department of Public Safety will immediately notify the Department of Motor Vehicles of misuse of plate. State law requires every city, town and village to appoint an agent (usually the city, town or village clerk) to issue parking permits for people with disabilities. The locality that issues the parking permit will be notified of the abuse of the parking permit. Upon request by that locality, the Department of Public Safety may confiscate parking permit and forward the parking permit to the issuing locality.

Vehicles that are parked in disabled parking spaces and do not have the authorized disability plate or parking permit or are not the authorized person of the disability plate or parking permit, are subject to ticketing and towing.

Please remember that reserved parking is for people with disabilities and is a legal requirement, not just a courtesy. Do not allow others to misuse your plates or parking permits.
