Information for the disabled and application forms for the Disabled Persons Card, are available from the centre communal d'action sociale, at your local Mairie, or COTOREP (commission technique d'orientation et de reclassement professionnel). The card provides for discounts and assistance in various areas.
Cars parked in disabled spaces must display the GIG - GIC disabled sticker or an EU blue badge in the window. The blue badge is a standardised European Community disabled person's parking permit which provides parking entitlements to badge holders in all complying European countries - a blue badge from one country is valid in another. A person coming to France from another EU country may want to apply in their home country for this universal badge which allows the use of reserved parking.
It is recommended to check locally at the town hall (hotel de ville) or with the municipal police (police municipal) for disabled parking regulations.
Things to keep in mind:
* Disabled spaces in car parks reserved for disabled people are marked with a wheelchair symbol
* Do not park in pedestrian zones or on roads where parking is not allowed
* Parking on roads is generally not free of charge for disabled drivers (except in Paris and a few other cities)
* In many areas, disabled drivers may park without time restrictions on roads where parking is free but has parking time limits

Drivers with a blue badge from another European country may display this translation beside a badge written in another language (text from the UK Automobile Association):
