MassDOT_RMV_LogoMassDOT RMV’s Disability/ Handicap Parking Abuse program is used to report a Massachusetts resident who may be misusing an RMV disability placard or handicap plate. Disability placards and handicap plates give people special parking access based on a determination that they have a medical need for it.

RMV Registrar Rachel Kaprielian encourages anyone who is aware of an able-bodied person misusing a disability placard or handicap plate to download and complete the Disability/ Handicap Parking Abuse form. Misuse can come in several forms, for example:

  • using someone else’s disability placard or handicap plate,
  • using an expired placard,
  • using a placard or plate that was issued based on incorrect or long-outdated information,
  • making a counterfeit placard or altering an existing one.

Please keep in mind that not all disabilities are visible to an observer (e.g., heart disease), so please file a Disability/ Handicap Parking Abuse only if you have some reason to believe abuse has taken place.

This form must be filled out completely and accurately for the violation to be investigated. You may be asked to provide additional information or to testify if the matter goes to a hearing.

You can also call the telephone hotline to report expected placard abuse : 866-604-1224
