SSD is excited to partner with Parking Mobility, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit community education and enforcement program designed to efficiently address accessible parking abuse in your community. Volunteers with Parking Mobility can help end accessible parking abuse through innovative enforcement, broad community awareness and empowerment of people with disabilities.
Parking Mobility recruits, trains and manages citizen volunteers to help solve the universal problem of accessible parking abuse on the local level. There is no better method to solving a problem than engaging your community on a grass-roots level to have them become a part of the solution.
SSD is bringing a Parking Mobility to campus on Monday April 10th and Wednesday April 12th from 4-6pm. Volunteers who complete the 4 hours of training may be eligible to be deputized to issue reports which will be processed by your local law enforcement and may result in a citation being mailed to the registered owner of the offending vehicle. Pizza will be provided as you learn about the laws and regulations about accessible parking and why accessible parking impacts the local economy and participation of people with disabilities in their communities. To RSVP for the training please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you can’t attend the training you can still get involved!
Download the free Parking Mobility App and use it to report every violation you see. You’ll become familiar with the App and how it works and the data you submit will help us educate your community. Once you register in the App, we will provide you with updates and information of our progress and other opportunities for you to get involved. You can always provide us with your thoughts and ideas on how we are doing.
We are excited about this opportunity to empower UT community members to help end accessible parking abuse through innovative enforcement, broad community awareness and empowerment of people with disabilities!
