This permit is not transferable to family members or any other individual. The eligible cardholder must be present in the vehicle at the time of use. A legal guardian may purchase under the disability exemption on behalf of a disabled individual, who must be present.
Guests must keep all pets and service animals on a leash not more than 6 ft. long and attended at all times. Pets are not allowed on swimming beaches. It is unlawful to copy or reproduce this permit.
