Applicable conditions

On roads and in car parks, parking places reserved for disabled people are marked with a wheelchair symbol or a symbol of a pregnant woman or a woman with a child in her arms.

Parking on roads

Do not park on roads where parking is prohibited unless it is an absolute necessity and only if it is for a short time and does not obstruct vehicles or pedestrians.

  • You must pay to park on roads where payment is required and you must not exceed the time paid for
  • You must not exceed time limits on roads where time restrictions apply
  • Parking places close to disabled persons' residences can be reserved - Check locally

Parking in car parks

Car parks generally do not offer concessions to vehicles displaying a disabled person's parking card.

Some local authorities establish a reserved parking place at the residence of a disabled person.
