Blue Badge Crackdown - it's long overdue!
« on: Feb 14, 11, 08:16 AM »
The people who abuse this system make life so much more difficult for the people who genuinely need it and can't find a space they can use... a few fraud prosecutions might help?

I have to heavily rely on mine now that I can't walk far and need to use a crutch(es) when out now - the old lungs are slowly packing up more and more and taking general health with them :(
I have seen so many people abusing them that it makes me sick :(
Despite being on the benefit that means I automatically qualify for a blue badge I "STILL" had to fight to get it but when I did get it it was free and has been a godsend for me :)

It must be a real lifeline for those drivers who qualify... That little bit of independence is worth fighting for.    :yup:

We need a similar crackdown here, half the time they don't even bother with a fake one in shopping centre carparks as the parking officers are rarely seen,  ::)
