N.J.S.A. 52:32.11 et seq. supplementing N.J.S.A. 39:4-197.5 and N.J.S.A. 40:48-2.46 authorizes the Township Committee to provide for the establishment and regulation of parking facilities for handicapped persons as hereinafter defined.
The Township Committee has determined that the establishment and regulation of parking facilities for handicapped persons will promote the health, welfare and safety of the residents of the Township, particularly the handicapped.
[Ord. No. 1098 § 1]
As used in this section:
PHYSICAL HANDICAP
Shall mean a physical impairment which confines a person to a wheelchair, causes a person to walk with difficulty or insecurity, affects the sight or hearing to the extent that a person functioning in public areas is insecure or exposed to danger, causes faulty coordination or reduces mobility, flexibility, coordination and perceptiveness to the extent that the facilities are needed to provide for the safety of that person.
PUBLIC BUILDINGS
Shall mean any building, structure, facility or complex used by the general public or to which the general public is invited, including, but not limited to, theaters, concert halls, auditoriums, museums, schools, libraries, recreational facilities, public transportation terminals and stations, factories, office buildings, businesses, shopping centers, hotels or motels and public eating places whether privately or publicly owned, except that this term shall not include private family residences, warehouse storage areas and all buildings conducting hazardous occupancies. As used herein, hazardous occupancies shall mean the occupancy or use of a building or structure or any portion thereof, that involves highly combustible, highly flammable, or explosive material or which has inherent characteristics that constitute a fire hazard.
[Ord. No. 1098 § 2]
The owners of all public buildings which provide parking spaces adjacent to or used in conjunction with a public building shall within one hundred eighty (180) days of notice thereof, provide for parking spaces for handicapped persons in accordance with the guidelines herein set forth and in a location and manner as determined by the Building Subcode Official. Any parking facility with less than sixteen (16) existing spaces shall be exempt from the provisions of this section.
[Ord. No. 1098 § 3]
Parking spaces for the physically handicapped shall be constructed according to the following guidelines:
a. 
A minimum of one (1%) percent of the total number of the parking spaces but not less than two (2) parking spaces shall be provided in an area of the parking facility which is most accessible and approximate to the building or buildings which the facility serves.
b. 
Each space or group of spaces shall be identified with a clearly visible sign displaying the International Symbol of Access along with the following wording:
"These spaces reserved for physically handicapped drivers."
c. 
Each space shall be twelve (12') feet wide to allow room for persons in wheelchairs or arm braces or crutches to get in or out of either side of an automobile onto a level, paved surface suitable for wheeling or walking.
d. 
Where possible such spaces shall be located so that the persons in wheelchairs or using braces or crutches are not compelled to wheel or walk behind parked cars.
e. 
Where applicable curb ramps shall be provided to permit handicapped people access from parking area to sidewalk.
[Ord. No. 1098 § 4]
No person shall park a vehicle in any space designated and marked as being set aside for the physically handicapped in any parking facility unless the vehicle shall have affixed thereto an identification certificate or mark issued either by the New Jersey Director of the Division of Motor Vehicles and/or a local certificate. Parking in a handicapped space without the aforesaid vehicle identification shall create a rebuttable presumption that use of the space was not for the physically handicapped.
[Ord. No. 1098 § 5]
The Township Clerk shall issue free of charge a Township Special Vehicle Identification Card to any physically disabled person (resident or non-resident) who may not qualify for such identification under N.J.S.A. 39:4-204 but does qualify under the definition of "Physical Handicap" in subsection 8-8.2. A physician's certificate shall be necessary to establish the qualifying status of each applicant.
[Ord. No. 1098 § 6]
Any person who violates any of the provisions of this section shall be liable upon conviction, to a maximum penalty not exceeding fifty ($50.00) dollars or imprisonment for a period not exceeding fifteen (15) days or both.
[Ord. No. 1649 § I]
The purpose of this section is to regulate the parking of vehicles on public property or on private property that is open to the public or to which the public is invited by prohibiting parking in areas designated as handicapped parking spaces except for use by persons who have been issued handicapped person identification cards by the Division of Motor Vehicles or a temporary placard by the Chief of Police of a municipality in the State of New Jersey and providing penalties for the violation thereof.
[Ord. No. 1649 § II]
This section is enacted in accordance with N.J.S.A. 40:48-2.46 which does confer upon the Township of Neptune the right to establish handicapped parking spaces in order to preserve and safeguard the public health, safety and welfare.
[Ord. No. 1649 § III]
The owners of all properties which contain parking yards and parking spaces which are open to the public or to which the public is invited and which require properly designated handicapped parking spaces pursuant to approved site plans or as may have been otherwise authorized by the Township of Neptune in accordance with its ordinances shall provide, maintain and install signs and pavement markings for each parking space reserved for use by handicapped persons. The cost of procurement and installment of the signs and pavement markings shall be that of the owner. The owner shall, subsequent to initial procurement and installation, maintain such signs and pavement markings in good condition at no cost or expense to the Township. The owner shall be responsible for the repair and restoration or replacement of same.
[Ord. No. 1649 § IV]
Each space or group of spaces shall be identified with a clearly visible sign displaying the international symbol of access along with the following words "Reserved Parking" together with notification of the penalties which may be imposed for a violation. The layout, designing and position of the signs erected shall be subject to review and approval by the Police Department.
[Ord. No. 1649 § V]
No person shall park a vehicle in any parking space designated and marked as being set aside for the physically handicapped in any parking facility whether on public or private property unless said vehicle shall have affixed thereto an identification certificate or marker issued either by the New Jersey Director of the Division of Motor Vehicles and/or a local certificate and a handicapped person is either the driver or a passenger in the vehicle. Parking in a handicap space without the aforesaid vehicle identification shall create a rebuttable presumption that use of the space was not for the physically handicapped.

a. 
Chief of Police to Issue Temporary Placard. The Chief of Police shall issue to any person who has temporarily lost the use of one (1) or more limbs or is temporarily disabled as to be unable to ambulate without the aid of an assisting device or whose mobility is otherwise temporarily limited, as certified by a physician with a plenary license to practice medicine and surgery in this State or a bordering State, a temporary placard of not more than six (6) months' duration. Each temporary handicapped placard issued under the provisions of this subsection shall set forth the date upon which it shall become invalid.
A physician's certificate shall be necessary to establish the qualifying status of each applicant. The certification shall be provided on the standard form approved by the Director of the Division of Motor Vehicles.
The placard may be renewed one (1) time for a period of not more than six (6) months' duration. It shall be displayed on the motor vehicle used by the temporarily handicapped person.
b. 
Fee for Issuance of Temporary Placard. The Chief of Police shall collect a fee of four ($4.00) dollars payable to the Director of the Division of Motor Vehicles upon issuance of the temporary placard pursuant to paragraph b.
[Ord. No. 1649 § VII]
