Blue coloured meters are used to identify accessible parking spaces. Please display your permit and pay the meter when parking in these spots.
Vehicles that are operated by, or carry a person with a disability, can use designated parking space in the City of Stratford, provided that they display a valid “Persons with a Disability Parking Permit” issued by any recognized Government. In Ontario, these permits are issued by the Ministry of Transportation.
Parking privileges available to persons with disabilities are different in each municipality. While all municipalities recognize valid permits at designated parking spaces, the rules differ. For example, the City of Stratford does not allow parking in prohibited areas such as “No Parking” or “No Stopping” zone, or adjacent to fire hydrants.
It is the responsibility of every driver who is disabled or transporting a passenger with a disability, to be aware of the By-laws of each municipality with regard to the use of these permits and park in the appropriate legal parking areas at all times.
The fine for parking in a designated parking space without a valid, proper parking permit is $300.00.
