Ottawa Cracking Down on Misuse, Forgery of Accessible Parking Permits

Bylaw officers in Ottawa are cracking down after a sharp spike in the number of cases of drivers misusing accessible parking permits in the city.

So far in 2018, officers have issued more than 380 tickets for parking in an accessible spot without a permit or while misusing one. Misuse of a permit includes forged permits, drivers using a permit issued to someone else, or using a permit that has expired.
