Battling Accessible Parking Abuse With an App

July 6, 2018

Parking Mobility Reporting App for iPhone and Android

Parking Mobility App (Apple AppStore / Google Playwas developed by Mack Marsh, a Texas man living with quadriplegia since 2001. Marsh came up with the idea after completing rehab, only to discover that lack of accessible parking was a barrier to work. Some employers told him they’d hire more people with disabilities if parking wasn’t such a problem. The app allows anyone to report disabled parking abuse in his city or town in less than two minutes.

When you see a vehicle parked illegally, simply launch Parking Mobility, take three photos and tap submit. App administrators will then inform the city’s officials, who frequently ticket the vehicle’s owner.

 
 
After we launched the app,”we started getting a picture of what the problem looked like,” Marsh says, “and it was far worse than anything we had ever imagined.” Very quickly, the app spread to over 100,000 users worldwide.

    I think this is great but what do we do with people use if others disabled parking permit.
    Also I think we should go after the doctors who give them out like candy.

    Ops. What do we do with people who use other people’s disabled permit or even steals other parking permits.

  3. Great and very necessary app! Accessible parking abuse is a reality that hasn’t been taken seriously enough so hopefully this will help.
