Volunteer to bust parking cheats
Monday, March 22, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano
If you’d like the power to cite vehicles illegally parked in spaces reserved for people with disabilities, the city of Austin has great news for you. The city is recruiting for its Accessible Parking Enforcement Volunteer Program, which trains volunteers to issue citations and warnings to vehicles illegally parked under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Currently, the program has enlisted about 50 volunteers, with a goal of amassing 200 volunteers by the end of the year. Information about eligibility requirements, training and how to apply to be a parking enforcement volunteer can be found here.
