About Me


  1. I do a lot of shopping for two relatives who are disabled and have blue badges one will always come shopping so got no problem there the other one he will stay in the car . now my feeling on this i should park in a normal space ( Supermarket car park ) since he is not getting out , we have had many aguments over this and i wondered wether someone could set me straight one way or another
  2. Hi, I recently got a parking ticket for driving into pedestrian zone outside the permitted hours in Northern Ireland. I was using the post office to post and collect items. As a blue badge holder I thought I could enter the zone, much like a delivery van or permit holders. I asked the department to look at it but they rejected my first appeal. Does anyone has any experience of this or the Point of law I could appeal on. Many thanks
  3. Hello, this is my first time posting in here, so I hope I'm in the right place. I was out with my elderly Mum earlier and when we got back to her car she had been given a parking ticket for £70. She has a blue badge which was clearly on display. She had parked on double yellow lines in a place where she has always parked with no problems in the past, there are no designated disabled parking spaces there. The ticket says 'Parked in a restricted street during prescribed hours'. We don't know whether we should appeal it as we don't know what that means I looked up the street and it is
  4. Hi i was looking for some help and advice. Last night bailiffs turned up out of the blue saying that i owed money on a outstanding parking ticket from 2010.i never received this parking ticket or any letters from the courts. I would have paid the ticket of £25 if i has received it, it is now £500. The bailiffs clamped my car and then parked outside my house for 3 hrs waiting for me to get the money. I had to give them the 500 as i need my car for work, i rang the council today to complain and find out about the ticket and they said i could contest it. I was wondering about the best way
  5. I am a carer for a disabled lady, and I am also an additional driver for her Motability car - we both hold "Blue badges" for our respective disabilities. What's the position if we park a car on a BB for the maximum time allowed, three hours usually, and then swop badges for up to six hours? I should point out that we've never attempted this, but I was wondering whether it's allowed. Sam
  6. Hi everybody, I received a parking fine whilst parked in a council multi-story car park. The details - I was with my partner and our newborn child along with our disabled daughter. So we parked on the ground floor and displayed (clearly) our blue disability parking badge. Long story short we came back and saw the ticket, then when i investigated, the only place it says that blue badge is not valid is on an actual sign net to the ticket booth (which is not near the entrance/exit) and nowhere else (i took pictures on my phone) do i have any grounds or is it a case of pay up? I
  7. A site as good as this always deserves a little something given back - I hope this helps. For those who don't know, all acts of parliament can be found on http://www.legislation.gov.uk. Traffic Management Act 2004 Part 6 Notification, adjudication and enforcement - Section 79 (5)The regulations shall provide— (a)that an immobilisation device must not be fixed to a vehicle if a current disabled person's badge is displayed on the vehicle; The Disability Discrimination Act 2005 Part 21B The Disabled Persons (Badges for Motor Vehicles) (England) Regulations 2000 Chronica
  8. A Government consultation about Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and its effect on eligibility for a Blue Badge (BB) will close on 2 October. The Department of Transport’s preferred option for bringing the process in line with new legislation is not expected to significantly affect the overall numbers of people entitled to BB. Currently, people are entitled to a BB if they receive a certain component of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) that relates to mobility. The DLA is being replaced by the PIP and so the Department needs to look at the way the BB system i
  9.
