General rules for vehicle registration still apply; refer to Section VI.E.1 in the main section of the Regulations.

Vehicles displaying valid TTU disability decals must park in designated disability spaces. If all disability spaces in a lot are taken, the vehicle may be parked only in the following areas, which are listed in priority order:

a. Visitor space
b. Time limit space
c. Area Reserved space
