Accessible Parking, What Does that Mean?

Tuesday, April 21, 2020
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM Eastern Time Zone


Accessible parking continues to be an area of confusion for people with disabilities and businesses. How many spaces must be accessible? Where should the accessible spaces be located? Who qualifies to park in accessible spaces? Who enforces parking laws? Join this session as we explore the complex issues of location, type, size, number and how all of this is enforced. The session will include the requirements for accessible parking in the 2010 ADA standards for accessible design. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions of our speaker.
