“Like so many other laws here in Florida, the state will recognize your out-of-state disabled parking decal,” Trooper Steve said. “Florida will actually recognize any disabled parking decal that has a valid registration from any state -- and any other country -- that displays the international sign of accessibility.”
For those of you thinking of taking advantage of the system, Trooper Steve has a warning.
“I wouldn’t try that,’ he said. “Between the national and state systems, law enforcement can trace most decals to its original designer and can confirm its validity.”
Be safe out there.
