Attention Landlords: New law takes effect Jan 1st 2011 regarding Handicap Parking signage

New law taking effect on January 1st, 2011 relative to posting Handicap Parking signage.

The law, passed on July 6th, 2010, establishes a penalty of $250.00 for failure to affix a sign to each designated Handicap or Disabled parking space on either public or private property. RSA 265:73-a Parking Signs; Disabled, states:

265:73-a Parking Signs; Disabled. A parking space on private or public property that is reserved for persons who are disabled shall be marked by a sign affixed to a post or a building. Said sign shall be clearly visible to anyone directly approaching that particular space. Failure to comply with the sign placement requirements of this section shall subject the property owner to a $250 fine, provided that the owner shall not be fined more than once in any 120-day period for the same violation.

Property owners and landlords should be aware that they are responsible for posting appropriate signage and assuring that it is in place after snow removal operations on their properties have ceased.
