Adapted and reserved car parks and parking places in Paris.
Non-EU visitors, who do not have the European parking card for disabled people, may use the reserved places if:
– their country has the status of associate member of the European Conference of Ministers of Transport (ECMT: list after);
– their parking card bears the logo ‘wheelchair’ and the name of the older (displayed clearly on the dashboard).
List of 7 associate ECMT member countries: Australia, Canada, South Korea, United States, Japan, Mexico and New Zealand.
NB : There is a risk of being verbalized by the police who are not always familiar with foreign parking cards, as there are so many different ones from one country to another. If this happens, the visitor simply needs to challenge the ‘infringement’ by making it clear that their country is an associate member of ECMT (‘CEMT’ in French) and by citing Resolution n°97/4.
