32 Miss. Code. R. § 22-4.2 - HANDICAPPED PARKING - LICENSE PLATES & PLACARDS
Current through December 27, 2021
Based on Section 27-19-56 Mississippi Code of 1972 as amended, any legal resident of the State of Mississippi who is physically handicapped may obtain a special license plate bearing the International Symbol of Access for not more than one vehicle that is registered in the applicant's name. The initial application shall be accompanied by the certification of a licensed physician that the applicant meets the definition of persons with disabilities, which limit or impair the ability to walk.
An applicant for a special license plate bearing the International Symbol of Access shall not be required to pay any fee or charge for the issuance of such license plate separate from or in addition to road and bridge privilege taxes, ad valorem taxes and registration fees otherwise required by law to be paid for the issuance of a regular license plate for such vehicle.
Also available is a removable placard bearing the International Symbol of Access, which allows the vehicle to park in areas set aside for the disabled when the person who is disabled is the driver or occupant of the vehicle. A temporary placard may be issued based upon a period determined by a physician that the applicant will have the disability, not to exceed six months. Placards for permanent conditions are printed as white on a blue shield. Temporary placards are white on a red shield and include a date of expiration. Both placards identify the individual for which it was issued.
Special license plates and placards may be obtained through the office of the Tax Collector in the applicants residence county. Forms requiring a physician to certify the presence of a disability are also available through the Tax Collector's office.
