Physically challenged persons displaying a handicap insignia in their vehicles are permitted to park closer to the water when conditions allow it. Normally, cars park between the dunes and the beach driving lane. A handicap insignia will permit you to park between the driving lane and the ocean, when ocean tides permit ( a high tide will not permit parking on the ocean side of the driving lanes).

You may get/return a handicap insignia/sign at any lifeguard station or beach patrol vehicle. Your vehicle has to display the “handicap parking only” sign in a window that faces the driving lane so it can be seen by beach patrol.

According to the Volusia County web site:

“Due to extreme congestion, east side parking (parking between the driving lane and the ocean) is not to be permitted in these areas: from the Silver Beach approach to the University Beach approach in Daytona Beach and from Crawford Avenue approach to the Third Avenue approach in New Smyrna Beach.

"Handicap Parking Only" spaces are provided at all lifeguard stations with the exception of the North County Lifeguard Station at 1665 Ocean Shore Blvd. (Roberta Road Cross Street) in north Ormond Beach. “
