Having a disabled parking permit can be a huge life saver for those that struggle walking longer distances. As the shopping malls get bigger and bigger, the walking distance from the parking lots gets longer and longer. Unfortunately, many people take advantage of this convenience when they don't truly have a need. For this reason, the State of Florida continues to make the issuance and renewal of these permits more difficult each year. While this helps curtail the fraudulent use of these permits, it also makes things more difficult for those that are truly in need. It is important to stay in tune with all of these constantly changing regulations with the state. All of this information can be found at the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles website. http://www.flhsmv.gov/dmv/disabled_pkg.html Don't get caught not having the appropriate forms to renew your permit.
