Mobility Parking

You may only park in areas marked with this sign if you, or someone in your vehicle has a mobility permit issued by CCS New Zealand.  They allow parking for free in areas marked as Disability parks. In areas marked P30 and longer the allowable time is doubled. In Pay and Display areas the cardholder pays for the first hour with the second hour free.
