Use of handicapped parking stalls and ramp access areas are restricted to only those vehicles with a state-issued handicapped license plate or displaying a state-issued certificate. If a handicapped space is not available, individuals displaying the proper handicapped stickers may park in regular parking spaces in surface lots. Meters should only be used in the event that the handicapped spaces in the lot are full. UST is not authorized to issue temporary handicapped permits and cannot provide reserved or special parking permits for those with disabilities. Individuals with temporary disabilities should apply to the state for a handicapped parking certificate.
Minnesota state law requires enforcement of handicapped parking stalls on a 24-hour basis, seven days a week, including holiday periods. Quick errands, deliveries or drop-offs are not valid excuses for parking in or obstructing handi capped stalls. Vehicles parked in spaces designated for the handicapped without this permit will be ticketed by the St. Paul Police Department and/or the UST Public Safety personnel.
