Disabled Parking Enforcement Program

Join our Disabled Parking Enforcement Volunteer program, we accept applications year round. Please watch our YouTube video to learn more.

In September of 1995, armed with new state legislation, Constable Bruce Elfant established a Citizen Disabled Parking Enforcement Program to ensure that disabled parking spaces would be available for those who are lawfully entitled to them. He fully expected that, with additional enforcement and publicity, citizens would come to understand the need for these parking spaces and comply with state law. As the program enters its 19th year at Travis County, disabled parking violations remain as prevalent as ever. Constable Lopez was instrumental in establishing the program and, as he takes over as the new Constable, he continues to be active and involved in working for county-wide recognition of the need for equal access for our disabled community.

A word from Constable Lopez

Constable Lopez showing confiscated hangtags“Ensuring equal access for our disabled community is one of the reasons I ran for constable. Since taking office I have deputized over 50 citizen volunteers to patrol and write citations for those who violate the law by parking in spaces that are reserved for people with disabilities. I have a full-time officer seizing hangtags illegally being used by people who are not disabled. My goal is to put this program out of business for lack of need but to do so I need your help: please volunteer with our disabled parking enforcement program.”

Those who are interested in becoming citizen volunteers can obtain applications HERE or by calling the Precinct 5 office at 512-854-5888.

While parking illegally in disabled parking spaces might not rate as the most serious of criminal offenses, violators who can walk a few extra feet to enter a business are often obstructing access for those who cannot. Good citizenship requires that we all do our part to ensure that the rights of those with physical disabilities are respected and protected.
