Wisconsin increases disability parking fines

Posted April 25th, 2014 @ 7:31am by Associated Press




MADISON, Wis. (AP) _ It will soon be three times more costly for drivers to park illegally in a disability parking spot in Wisconsin.

Governor Scott Walker signed a bill Wednesday increasing those fines starting Friday.

The new law will increase minimum fines from $50 to $150. The current maximum penalty of $300 won't change.

The law also creates a fine for building owners to not provide enough disability parking spaces on site. Building owners or occupants with at least 26 parking spaces must reserve disabled parking spaces or pay between $150 and $300.
