Town of Groton, NY
Parking for People with Disabilities
Applications for hanging placards are submitted by mail or in person to the Town Clerk's Office. If you will need a license plate, the application goes to the Department of Motor Vehicles.
Information About Your Parking Permit:
Your permit is designed to hang from the rear view mirror when parked. DO NOT leave it hanging while driving because it obstructs your view and could result in a ticket.
The permit is issued to you, not your vehicle. You may use your permit in any vehicle you travel in.
Since the permit is issued to only you, you must be either driving or a passenger in the vehicle when your permit is used. DO NOT allow anyone else to use your permit.
Your permit allows you to park in designated areas, however it does not exempt you from any parking regulations or fees.
If you lose your permit, you should report it to the Clerk’s Office and we will issue you a replacement.
A “permanent” parking permit (blue) is issued for 5 years at a time. If your “permanent” permit is nearing its expiration date you can renew it at the Clerk’s Office without getting additional paperwork from your doctor.
A “temporary” parking permit (red) is issued for a maximum of 6 months. If you still need a permit after this time, you must get a new form filled out from your doctor.
DO NOT use an expired permit. You could be issued a ticket for doing so.
