Representative Larry Miller (R-122), who represents a small portion of Trumbull, introduced a bill that would provide temporary parking permits for pregnant women who are in their last trimester and are wishing to park a vehicle in a parking space designated for persons who are blind and persons with disabilities. He said a similar measure passed in New York.
“I think most people can recognize that pregnancy can be a challenge, and that mobility can become difficult for some women, especially in their third trimester,” said Miller. “I am certainly not suggesting that pregnancy is a disability — but I think it would be good policy to have the option available to women who choose to. They could apply to their doctor for a note to provide a temporary parking permit while they are pregnant.”
