follows:
  1.  (A)  Any  person,  firm or corporation owning a shopping center or
facility with at least five separate retail stores and at  least  twenty
off  street  parking  spaces  which are provided for use by the shopping
public must designate as only for the handicapped and clearly  mark  for
use  by the handicapped a minimum of five percent of such parking spaces
or ten such spaces whichever is less. These spaces must  be  located  as
close  as  reasonably  practicable  to  the shopping center facility and
reasonably distributed so as to provide convenient  access  for  use  by
handicapped  drivers. Such parking spaces are to be used either by hand-
icapped drivers  displaying  a  special  municipal  parking  permit  (as
defined  in section twelve hundred three-a of this [chapter] ARTICLE and
distributed by the commissioner [of motor vehicles] to  local  governing
bodies  to be issued to handicapped persons who reside in such locality)
or by motor vehicles registered in accordance with section four  hundred
four-a  of this chapter and being used for the transportation of a hand-
icapped person.
  (B) ONE IN EVERY EIGHT HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE SPACES SHALL BE VAN  ACCES-
SIBLE.  WHERE FIVE OR MORE PARKING SPACES ARE DESIGNATED HANDICAP ACCES-
SIBLE, ANY SPACE THAT IS DESIGNATED AS VAN ACCESSIBLE SHALL BE  RESERVED
FOR  WHEELCHAIR  USERS ONLY. A VAN ACCESSIBLE PARKING SPACE RESERVED FOR
WHEELCHAIR USERS SHALL BE AT LEAST NINE FEET  WIDE  AND  SHALL  HAVE  AN
ADJACENT ACCESS AISLE THAT IS AT LEAST EIGHT FEET WIDE.
  (C) VAN ACCESSIBLE PARKING SPACES SHALL BE AT LEAST NINE FEET WIDE AND
SHALL HAVE AN ADJACENT ACCESS AISLE THAT IS AT LEAST SIX FEET WIDE.
