New parking fine without permit

Wednesday, 7th March, 2018 4:12pm

The fine for parking in a disabled bay without displaying a valid permit has increased.
The fixed charge will increase from €80 to €150, which motorists have 28 days to pay. It then rises to €225 if paid within the following 28 days.

Announcing the new increase, transport Minister Shane Ross said: “In response to the selfish and thoughtless behaviour of certain motorists who think it is alright to park in a disabled bay without a permit, thereby depriving disabled drivers of safe, convenient access to parking spaces reserved for them, I have decided that the fixed charge should be increased from €80 to €150. I hope that this increased charge will encourage able-bodied motorists to refrain from taking parking spaces reserved for those who need them.”

Disabled drivers can download a form from the Disabled Drivers Association, which must then be completed and certified by a doctor, and countersigned by a Garda.
