Michigan Vehicle Codes MCL 257.674, 257.675 and 257.675c contain the following sections pertaining to the display and use of a disabled parking permit. A disability placard or license plate is intended for use only by the person with a disability or someone transporting the person with a disability.
Under Michigan Law, it is illegal to:
- Use a disability placard or license plate when the person with a disability is not being transported.
- Lend a disability placard to another person
- Alter or make a copy of a disability placard
- Continue using the disability placard issued to a family member who has since passed away.
Improper use may result in the immediate confiscation and cancellation of the disability placard or license plate. Furthermore, improper use, altering, forging, or copying a disability placard is a misdemeanor crime that may result in fines up to $500, jail time up to 30 days, or both.
Any individual presenting a placard for accessible parking privileges at MIS is subject to a review of integrity by on-site law enforcement.
Additionally, Michigan International Speedway reserves the right to refuse admission, eject from its facility and deny ticket renewal privileges to any person whose actions and conduct are deemed inappropriate or illegal.

The Speedway recognizes the importance of service animals in assisting guests with visual and other impairments.

Guests who bring service animals should request wheelchair seating to accommodate the service animals safely and comfortably.
