Secretary of State's Office cracking down on abuse of disabled parking


With shoppers out in droves this Black Friday, the Secretary of State's Office is taking the opportunity to make sure no one takes advantage of disability parking spaces.

Members of the Illinois Secretary of State's Police will be at CherryVale Mall on Friday and Saturday to enforce disability parking laws. The goal of the enforcement is to avoid abuse of those spaces and make sure those that need the spaces are able to access them.

The fine for parking in a disability parking space can be up to $350. Anyone who illegally uses a placard or disability license plate in a disability space without the authorized holder of the placard or plate will face a fine of up to $500 and possibly have their license suspended.

Tune in to 13 News at 5 for more on their enforcement efforts.
