In the 27 or so years since the enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act, parking remains a hot topic, crisscrossing several titles of the ADA. There are still common situations and issues that pertain to accessible parking as a uniquely singular area of disability law that continue to persist as a popular ADA issue for everyone involved. There is no escaping ADA parking on a daily basis. 

For clarification on Title III and the public accommodations, and the private sector; Title II and public entities, State and local government; or Title I, employment discrimination, or Fair Housing; these questions can be hard to navigate.

Questions can range from charging for parking or metered parking in public areas, accessible parking at colleges, what employer obligations are, including how to register for accessible parking placards. Contacting your local ADA center is often the only way to get reliable information. If you have questions contact Dana at the Northwest ADA Center – Idaho at
