It is important to know that for persons with disabilities who are drivers and car owners, the placement of their vehicles in the area of ​​a 6.4 sign with an additional sign 8.17 with a valid certificate, is free of charge.

The presence on the side of the corresponding traffic sign is a confirmation that in its area of ​​operation there are places specifically designated for transport of drivers with disabilities. However, in some places the pointer is missing, but there is a sign prohibiting parking.

For healthy people, such information limits the parking interval (stop), no more than 5 minutes. And for the disabled, this limit does not apply. Such citizens legally have the right to throw the vehicle for a fairly long period.

Area of ​​validity of the sign "Parking for the disabled"

Under the index 6.4 and the plate 8.17 there may be special signs applied on the road surface with a stencil. Duplication of information allows you to specify the allocated places for cars. The presence of exclusively signs without a sign has no legal effect.

The current GOST 52289-2004 assumes that a parking space will be indicated on the asphalt. Otherwise, it is permissible to be guided to allocate space by an area not less than 3 m wide to ensure comfort and free opening of side doors. Only the presence of a print on the site makes it impossible to arrange parking for persons with disabilities.
