A vehicle shall not park in any parking spot designated for the parking of persons with disabilities unless the vehicle bears a license plate for persons with disabilities or a transferable motor vehicle identification windshield placard displayed as required in sections 41-1a-414 and 41-1a-420 of the Utah code or their successor sections. This restriction shall apply to and be enforceable upon all property where parking is open to the general public, whether parking is provided to the general public for free or for a fee.
B. It is unlawful for any person using a vehicle with a license plate designated for persons with a disability, or a transferable motor vehicle identification windshield placard, to occupy parking spaces designated for person with a disability unless the vehicle is being used to transport a person with a disability.
