Parking Program for Persons with Disabilities " Abuse Complaint Form " Online : Illinois Secretary of State

Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White announced in 2009 that the public will be able to report disability parking abuse through the Secretary of State’s Web site.

The public can go to www.cyberdriveillinois.com when they see people violating the Persons With Disabilities Parking Program.

“We’re pleased to use technology to make it easier for the public to alert us to people that wrongfully abuse this meaningful program,” White said. “We want to catch those individuals who take these vital spaces from those who are truly in need.”

People can now report able-bodied people parking in disability parking spaces or using disability placards without the disabled individual in the vehicle. People can make the report anonymously, but they must be able to report the license plate, disability placard, or disability plate number.

White also warns people never to confront the abuser.
