PARKING WITH YOUR PERMIT

Permits must be displayed in the vehicle by hanging them from the rear view mirror. The registration number and expiry date must face away from the driver, so that they are easily visible when looking through the windshield from outside the vehicle. If you are unable to reach the rear view mirror, you may also display the permit on the vehicle dashboard, with the registration number and expiry date facing up. Parking permits must only be displayed when the vehicle is parked.
