§ 285-6 Handicapped parking spaces established.

Parking spaces restricted for use by handicapped persons who have been issued handicapped person identification cards, and display handicapped person placards or license plates, are hereby established in all parking lots within the Township provided in conjunction with or to serve public buildings, to be designated as such in accordance with the guidelines hereinafter set forth. Any parking lot with less than 20 existing spaces shall be exempt from the provisions of this article, but such exemption shall not apply to newly constructed or remodeled buildings and structures.

A minimum of one handicapped parking space shall be designated for handicapped parking by each owner of a parking lot as defined hereinabove which contains up to 50 parking spaces.

For lots containing over 200 parking spaces, a minimum of 1% of the total number of spaces in the lot shall be required (rounded to the next higher whole number). These minimum standards shall not preclude a determination by the Township Police Department that additional spaces shall be required to be designated where necessary due to parking lot configuration, number of entrances, distances between buildings or similar considerations.
B. 
The designated handicapped parking spaces shall be located in an area of the parking lot which is most accessible and proximate to the public building(s) the lot serves, as approved by the Police Department of the Township of Parsippany-Troy Hills pursuant to § 285-8.

D. 
Each handicapped parking space shall be a minimum of 12 feet in width to permit handicapped persons to get in and out of either side of a motor vehicle onto a level, paved surface suitable for wheeling and walking.
E. 
Where possible, such spaces shall be located so that handicapped persons are not compelled to wheel or walk behind parked cars.
F. 
Where applicable, as determined by the Police Department of the Township of Parsippany-Troy Hills, curb ramps shall be provided to permit handicapped persons access from the parking lot to a sidewalk.

§ 285-8 Compliance; sketch plan required.

The owners of all premises required to provide handicapped parking spaces as specified herein shall submit a sketch plan indicating the present or proposed location of such spaces to the Commander of the Traffic Division of the Township Police Department within 30 days from the effective date of this article. The sketch plan shall require approval by the Commander of the Traffic Division or his designee and shall be retained and kept on file in the Township Police Department. The sketch plan must be approved prior to the installation of any new handicapped parking spaces. Where parking spaces presently exist on property subject to these requirements, they shall be visually inspected by the Commander of the Traffic Division or his designee for conformance with the sketch plan and to insure that they are the proper size and designated and marked according to law. In all cases, once the sketch plan has been approved, the owner shall have 60 days from the date of approval to install and mark new handicapped spaces or correct deficiencies in existing spaces. Any owner failing to submit a sketch plan as required or to provide properly designated and marked handicapped parking stalls within the time periods prescribed in this article shall be subject to penalties in accordance with § 285-13 of this article.

§ 285-9 Changes to spaces; approval required.

Handicapped parking spaces installed pursuant to an approved sketch plan shall not be altered or moved unless a new sketch plan has been submitted and the change has been approved by the Police Department.

§ 285-10 Maintenance of markings.

All signing, pavement, markings, depressed curbing and/or ramps shall be maintained in good and proper condition, including but not limited to the condition that required markings and signs should remain distinctly visible at all times.

Where a passenger or driver of a motor vehicle is authorized by his possession of handicapped person identification card to park in a handicapped parking space, the identification card or placard shall be placed on the top of the dashboard near the steering wheel so as to be visible through the front windshield of the car, and failure to place this identification card as described above when otherwise properly parking in a handicapped parking space will constitute a violation of this article subject to the penalties of § 285-13.

§ 285-12 Enforcement.

This article shall be enforced by the Police Department of the Township of Parsippany-Troy Hills.

§ 285-13 Violations and penalties.
