Disabled Parking Placards Not Subject to Registration Refusal Due to Scofflaw Notation
To remind you of scofflaw handling related to Disabled Parking Placards.
The Texas Transportation Code provides three statutes regarding refusal to register a vehicle due to scofflaw or non-payment of civil penalties.
Sec. 502.010 County Scofflaw.
Sec. 702.003 Refusal to Register Vehicle (City Scofflaw).
Sec. 707.017 Enforcement (Red Light Camera Violation).
Please distribute this reminder to your staff:
The provisions of the three "scofflaw" statutes described above apply only to the authority to refuse to register a motor vehicle and do not apply to the issuance of a Disabled Parking Placard or any other motor vehicle transaction.
If you have any questions, please contact your local TxDMV Regional Service Center.
