City to Reserve 40 Paid Parking Spots in Mount Vernon for Handicapped Drivers


By Ethan McLeod, Baltimore Fishbowl

In what’s perhaps the most competitive neighborhood for parking in the city, officials plan to reserve 40 on-street spots for handicapped drivers while also requiring them to start feeding the meter.

The change, set to launch Oct. 30, will mark the fourth installment of the city’s Project Space initiative. The Parking Authority of Baltimore City says the program’s core goals include cutting down on car burglaries targeting those coveted handicap tags that let drivers park in the best spots for free, and reducing abuse of the placards by non-handicapped drivers to free up more spaces for those who are actually disabled.

Of course, handicapped drivers take a hit in having to start paying for parking. Non-handicapped drivers may also find their supply of spots even further limited.
