Catching people abusing handicap
parking spots

As part of the Mayor's Volunteer Initiatives Program (VIP), Park Houston holds volunteer trainings for citizens interested in getting involved in protecting their communities and helping fight disabled parking abuse.

The Disabled Parking Volunteer Program is designed to ensure individuals whose needs require accessible parking spaces have those spaces available. With the generous help of citizen volunteers, Park Houston is better able to ensure parking space availability to those who need it most.

Volunteers are required to attend a four hour training session and pass a background check. Once complete, volunteers are empowered to issue citations within the Houston City limits to those who abuse disabled parking spaces.
