Allen & Pennacchio Bill Preventing Abuse of Disabled Parking Privileges Signed Into Law

Aims to Reduce Abuse, Wrongful Issuance of Parking Privileges

Legislation sponsored by Senators Diane Allen (R- Burlington) and Joe Pennacchio (R- Morris) updating state laws to prevent abuse and wrongful issuance of disabled parking placards has been signed by Governor Chris Christie.

“Every time someone who is not disabled inappropriately obtains or uses a placard, he or she takes that parking space away from someone truly in need,” said Allen. “I’m pleased that the Governor has signed common sense changes to the law that will ensure proper verification of a placard holder’s disability on an ongoing basis.”
