Around 13% of Americans are classified as having a disability, according to the latest data from the Disability Statistics Annual Report.
While this is a large proportion, there are strict conditions that qualify patients for disabled parking permits.
Although some qualifying conditions vary from state to state, generally if patients are:<
- Unable to walk a set number of feet without stopping to rest (in some states this number can be as low as 50 or as high as 200)
- Require the use of a cane, crutch, brace, prosthetic device, wheelchair, or the assistance of another person
- Require the use of a portable oxygen mask to walk
- Are considered to be legally blind (visual acuity of 20/200 or less with the use of corrective lenses)
