Are disabled parking permits too easy to get?

DAYTON

A sharp increase in the number of disabled parking permits issued in Ohio has raised questions about whether they are too easy to acquire and how to meet the demand for spaces, a newspaper reported Thursday.

The state of Ohio handed out 300,000 of the disabled parking placards last year, which was a 21-percent increase from 2006, according to the Dayton Daily News.

Requirements to get a placard include a prescription from a health professional, which requires proof of a disability, an application to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles and a $3.50 fee.

Still, some consider the application process too lax.

“It is the general feeling of council members that it is too easy to get one of those placards,” Linda Oda, chairwoman of the Governor’s Council on People with Disabilities, said.
