Is It Okay for Drivers to Use out of State Disabled Placards?

disabledWith Thanksgiving happening this week, countless families will be reuniting to celebrate. In many cases, families will be driving in from out of town to spend the holiday in Florida with their friends and loved ones. If some of these families from another state happen to be disabled, will an issue arise if they are using an out of state disabled parking placard?

Those concerned about their loved ones running into trouble can rest assured that parents with a disability can use their legally issued disabled placard with little issue in Florida, regardless of what part of the country they may be from.

The only thing that needs to be taken care of is making sure that the placard is being used correctly. In Florida, this means hanging the placard from the rearview mirror when parking in a disabled spot. However, if the placard is one from out of state and it cannot be hanged for whatever reason, it simply needs to be easily visible when the vehicle is parked.
