Blue Badge Parking Abuse.

At our nearest shopping mall we are always amazed to see expensive looking vehicles: Mercedes, BMWs, Audis, Jaguars and big sports utility vehicles displaying blue badge parking permits in disabled parking bays. Most disabled we know can hardly rub two pennies together and it seems this abuse by scumbags who not only occupy parking bays meant for the disabled but getaway with free car parking.  We have often seen people looking quite fit getting in and out of vehicles displaying blue badge permits.  There seems to be a very obvious abuse of the scheme and we would suggest that this needs to be brought under control and those who are abusing the system be fined heavily.

    Do remember that the driver of those posh motors mnay not be disabled, but may still be correclty using the badge. They may, for example, be transporting their disabled elderly mother, or their blind business partner, or their severely disbaled child as a passenger. Being rich does nto prevent disability either – even top people suffer MS, or break their backs or suffer disbaling arthritis.

    And you do not need a wheelchair or sticks to be disabled. Many people with chronic heart or breathing problems will look “normal” until they have walked a few hundred yards!

    You do have a point, and we are sure there are genuine cases but our observations have shown us that there are people abusing the blue badge permit system.
