Central Piedmont Community College, Preferred Parking, and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department want to ensure that all handicapped persons have access to appropriate parking spaces. A survey of handicapped parking space users has revealed that a number of students are using handicapped placards not issued to them. North Carolina statute 20-37.6(2) makes it illegal for any person who is not qualified to receive a handicapped placard to exercise such rights. A violation of G.S. 20-37 carries a penalty up to $250. Preferred Parking and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department are going to actively enforce this statute on the CPCC campus. Please help us ensure parking spaces are available to those who need them by not parking in handicapped spaces unless you qualify.
