On August 28, 2018 Governor Baker signed into Law the Veterans Benefits “BRAVE” Act (Benefits, Rights, Appreciation, Validation and Enforcement)

One of the many benefits of this Act allowed for a municipality to designate parking spaces for Veterans. You may have already seen these signs “popping” up at various locations to include retail stores.

To park in one of these “Premier” parking spaces your vehicle (owned and operated by the Veteran) must display a valid Veterans Plate issued by the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV).

If you do not have a Veterans Plate and wish to obtain one, contact the RMV or your insurance company (additional fees may apply).
