Town takes new spin on handicapped parking signs

MAYNARD, Mass. (WPRI) — A new spin on handicapped parking signs is growing in popularity in Maynard, Massachusetts.

The new design shows a person in a wheelchair with the perception of forward motion. The idea to update the symbol came from a high school senior who felt it was time for a change. Town administrators agreed.

“What I like about this is that it’s a person capable of movement and action,” said Town Administrator Kevin Sweet.

All municipal and school parking spots in the town have been updated with the new symbol.
