    Who qualifies for a free-parking sticker?

    To qualify for a free-parking sticker, you must have a valid Michigan driver's license and be unable to do one or more of the following:

    • Insert coins or tokens in a parking meter or accept a ticket from a parking lot machine due to a lack of fine motor control of both hands.
    • Reach above your head to a height of 42 inches from the ground, due to lack of finger, hand or upper extremity strength or mobility.
    • Approach a parking meter due to the use of a wheelchair or other ambulatory device.
    • Walk more than 20 feet due to an orthopedic, cardiovascular or lung condition in which the degree of debilitation is so severe that it almost completely impedes your ability to walk.

    Please note that privately owned parking lots and garages are not required to provide free parking.
