The Village of Norridge follows State of Illinois Motor Vehicle Statues, Illinois Accessibility Code, and Village Ordinance. It is prohibited to park any motor vehicle which is not bearing registration plates, decals, or placards issued to a person with disabilities in any parking place except for the space containing the International symbol of access. If you park on the striped access next to the space you are in violation of the laws set forth concerning the placard. If you are not the authorized holder of the placard it shall be unlawful for you to park in the designated disabled parking space. The purpose for the striped access way is to allow for access of people that need the extra space to either exit the vehicle or to extend a ramp into the area.
