The Baltimore City Department of Transportation would like to advise citizens of a new vehicle law which affects motorists who park in residential permit parking areas.
During the 2013 Maryland General Assembly session, Senate Bill 742/House Bill 770, Vehicles Laws – Residential Parking in Baltimore City, was passed which applies to holders of special registration plates/placards for individuals with disabilities. The bill specifies that persons who possess disability plates or placards cannot supersede local parking ordinances in Baltimore City which restrict parking for vehicles that do not display specified residential parking permits. This means that individuals with disability plates or placards must now comply with hourly parking limitations in residential permit parking areas.
The new vehicle law, which falls under Section 13-616 of the Transportation Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland, became effective on October 01, 2013. A violation pertaining to the use of special disability registration plates and placards in parking zones can result in fines of up to $500. Citizens in possession of disability tags/placards are strongly encouraged to pay close attention to posted residential permit parking signs in city neighborhoods.
