ASBURY PARK, N.J. — Disabled veterans and Purple Heart recipients who live in New Jersey can now park for free at municipal parking meters.

The state’s Motor Vehicle Commission on Thursday announced that the placards are now available.

The placards can only be used in vehicles owned by the veteran and when that person is a driver or passenger.

Veterans looking for the placards can go to www.njmvc.gov or call 609-292-6500.
