Governor proposes legislation to change handicapped parking symbol



HARTFORD, Conn. – Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is on board with changing the handicapped parking symbol on signs throughout the state.

Jonathan Slifka, the governor’s liaison to the disability community, said he made Malloy aware of the “Change the Sign. Change the Attitude” campaign spearheaded by the Arc of Farmington Valley, also known as FAVARH.

If the General Assembly adopts the legislation, which still has a long way to go to becoming law, the new logo would replace the current stick figure in a wheelchair with a sleeker wheelchair design that represents a person tilted forward and on the move.

The word “RESERVED” does not convey the actual meaning. It makes it look like it’s reserved for tenants or employees or something.
What a ridiculous waste. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.

Hi Christine,

True, spending money again. If that money is going to donate for the persons with disability then that’s a good of wasting money.
