Understanding the space and the striping next to it.

The photos below show ADA Parking Spaces. If you do not have a valid ADA placard properly displayed in your vehicle then you cannot park in the designated space or the striped area adjacent to the space even if you’re only going to be there for 30 seconds or 5 minutes and even if you leave someone in the vehicle and have your hazards on. These practices are not valid reasons to remove a parking space from someone who must have this space available to properly get to and from locations where they need to be.
