Croatia Leads EU in Introducing Universal Disability Parking Card

Croatia has become the first EU country to implement the EU-wide parking card for people with disabilities. 

This card allows parking in designated areas across the EU, marked with the accessibility symbol. Poslovni reports that the process of integrating data for the European and National ID cards, including these new parking cards, has begun. People with disabilities are encouraged to update their information promptly in the Disability Register (ROI) through the email invaliditet@hzjz.hr, as per the announcement from AKD.

The introduction of these documents, under the new Traffic Privileges Act, aims to facilitate access to a variety of benefits and rights for people with disabilities.

This initiative falls under the umbrella of the MOSI project (Mobility System Improvement for People with Disabilities), spearheaded by the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure, with AKD as a partner.

This groundbreaking initiative, outside of a pilot scheme, is funded through the National Recovery and Resilience Plan, with an investment exceeding two million euros. The documents will be issued automatically to users, based on disability data from the Disability Register at the Croatian Institute of Public Health (HZJZ) and other necessary public administration records.
