So only a handicapped spot, you run the risk that you will be stolen card! A card vault is the only way to avoid! I also have a safe, and I only need when I am standing in a handicapped spot. People from out of town who want a disabled parking card in Amsterdam must visit "Cition" if they do not want betalenof find an empty handicapped parking there than they do not have to pay for!

23-01-2018

I would like to know if my parking with GPK it or not allowed in Winkelstraten. We still have doubts about. Can you explain that to us, and / or add to the site.

To visit our old daughter, who lives in Amsterdam recently, we have started looking for a disabled parking space at its close. Let's first via Google and the site of Parking Management District and West. Nothing Found. Parkeerbeheer calls, which do not know! District called: they do not know either! Amsterdam is not the most social city regarding parking for people who are dependent on a wheelchair. In the city where I live you can go to the town as well as in parking management information where you can park as disabled, which is fortunately much better organized! Bad thing, Amsterdam!

25-01-2018

What a mess there with you in Amsterdam. As a regular visitor to Amsterdam I recently received two fines. The first is forgiven me, because first time and being ignorant. A few weeks later had I re-price; another boete.Zover I know there is a hierarchy in law. The european legislation stands above a local. The rules used by Amsterdam is so utterly wrong valid. It was also me, being a Belgian, I explained that "as a citizen of Amsterdam" a special card that request.? Is this the Netherlands in 2O11; Disabled people bother with this nonsense? For more money in the drawer, you can really do think of other things. Currently, I still waiting for a response from the Mayor of Amsterdam, the head of Police of Amsterdam, ... If that does not help to stop this nonsense, I write to you minister to and if that does not help Beatrix. If that does not help, there is of course Europe itself. This is pure discrimination. Shame.

25-01-2018

So if I understand I need to get a digital parking right? How do I do that? I have a GPK miss both legs in an accident. There is now often in the wheelchair, but have now prosthetics and going more and more to walk with it. Then it is handy if I could park close ... Can we do something with the fact that this card in Amsterdam should be used in any other way? Part is still being discussed in parliament? Or is that already happened?

26-01-2018

I have MS, have a GPK and a handicapped parking space at my house, on license, I had to pay for, but I always had a parking plek.Nu the wooncorperatie the nearby parking garage remodeling and disabled parking mine and two other disabled temporarily during the work verplaatst.Nu we had from the wooncorperatie message that we have been in the garage for 40 euros a month, while we first of the municipality had a parking space.

Dear readers, see my story 29-09-2009. I filed a complaint and luckily not for nothing. My objection is accepted and destroyed the ticket. I'm going to apply for a digital release. It's just a shame that people do not make the same in all places in the Netherlands rules about GPK. Actually absurd that every city can make its own rules and regulations about it!

26-01-2018

Superb z `disabled parking behind the front window, she hit your window and road map and those can park in a disabled parking without being disabled.

26-01-2018

Ben regularly as a tourist in Amsterdam, you severely disabled. Can I qualify for a digital-parking card for disabled visitors?

27-01-2018

This morning I visited the university with my disabled husband. He is in possession of a Disabled Parking permit which we freely throughout the Netherlands - for free - can park, both as paid parking at designated places. To my great surprise, I found a parking ticket under my windshield wiper to return to, because I had not paid. The GHK was visible on the dashboard. Now it appears that Amsterdam totally different guidelines used by the rest of the Netherlands. As a caregiver for my husband so I have failed to spend my limited time on searching for information on the Internet and this is an expensive lesson for us. Sad, but unfortunately true. I'm not a complainer, meanwhile accustomed to overcome all kinds of obstacles that you encounter with a disabled man in your path. A near being agent thing I asked if I could park there for free, even said yes, without specifying you must log etc also the doorman of the university said that the mocht.Maar I'm now really just an objection letter for the parking ticket, because I do not find just that disabled people, who can freely in all places in the Netherlands park but need to know that are.This else in Amsterdam, the rules had to introduce myself to the heart.

It is still important that the community care retains the RIGHT placing stakes on the bike paths. There is too little thought to the rotational capabilities of the handicapped mobiles / bicycles. And therefore the disabled agile units / reporting of the program. The swivel to keep up the stress level remains low, they are now MUCH placed too tight. Gehadicapten have to do a lot more factors than estimated: their own physical disability; surrounding impatient cyclists and mopeds; own material sensitivity. The space is so cramped and a bump is like a whole damage to the disabled vehicle; larger passage gives better throughput for cyclists with a short fuse. tollerantie also to each one makes life behaagelijker.

28-01-2018

Digital parking in Amsterdam for our compatriots living outside Amsterdam and in possession of a valid GPK and therefore can park in Amsterdam is great :-), there may still many municipalities take an example. :-(

But yeah ... income or interest score are clearly more important than a social approach! Hope you accepted objection wordt.De only reason I can come up with to maintain such a policy is the 'precious' possession of the disabled parking in Amsterdam.
