My disabled persons placard was not visible and I was given a parking ticket. What do I do now?

Within 21 days of receiving the citation, please submit a copy of the disabled persons placard, the disabled persons placard registration, and photo ID by mail, in person, or at the website listed on the back of the citation. Upon verification of your placard registration, the citation will either be reduced to a $25 administrative fee (per CVC 40226) or dismissed depending on the parking violation. To report your placard lost or stolen you should contact the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) right away.
