The city of Chicago will begin enforcing a new state law narrowing the use of disability parking placards.

The law allows free metered parking only for drivers who get placards based on a doctor's note saying that the driver is physically incapable of paying at the meter box.

Violators will face a $65 fine downtown and $50 in other areas of the city.

This is a new system designed to reduce fraud and stop drivers from using their family members passes. This law took effect January 1st, but the city installed a 15 day grace period and will begin enforcing the new law today.
