UI Installing Meters At Disabled Parking Spots

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — The University of Illinois will start installing meters at disabled parking spaces on campus.

The News-Gazette reports Tuesday that the school plans to install 150 meters at disabled parking spaces where there previously weren’t meters. The effort comes after state lawmakers passed legislation creating a tiered system for drivers with disabled parking placards. The new system requires those with disabled parking placards to get a doctor’s note if they have difficulty accessing meters.

UI officials say disabled parking meter installation is expected to last into early May. University officials say they’ve left information about the meters in parking lots and garages. They also plan to put up informational signs at new meters.
