  1. Some advice please. My severely disabled daughter (uses an electric wheelchair) and her carer used a car park in Exeter in a Smart Parking car park, but the carer only entered the last 3 letters of the car reg. This is most probably because in our local council car parks you only need the last three letters. The letter states we did not purchase a ticket or it was insufficient time. I still have the ticket and photographic evidence that we paid and parked, so I appealed on their behalf. The appeal was on the grounds that we did not enter the full reg and they are upholding the
  2. i'm asking on behalf of a friend who is a wheelchair user and had to attend homerton hospital for her daughters appointment. they drove around looking for a BB parking space and couldn't find one and as the appointment time was nearing they parked on St Barnabas Terrace. they are newham council residents and and unfortunately hackney council seem to follow different rules, in newham they can park in resident only bays etc with a BB. they did not realise that they can not park in the business permit holders only bay with a BB and i know ignorance is not a defence but this was t
  3. Hi all, I wonder if you can help me. My partner and I had to rush our son into queens hospital on 02.02.17 on doctors advice as he had quite a severe reaction to antibiotics and needed to see a Paeds speciality doctor. we arrived at the hospital and found there were no disabled spaces outside - infact there were no spaces outside available at all initally. We drove around past A&E towards the Maternity car park where someone was leaving a space - which are marked as normal bays. We have parked in these spaces before and asked site security (actual queens se
  4. Received a yellow PCN whilst in retail park 3/1/18. Yellow one from VCS. I was parked in the Disabled bay and in a rush. Placed my badge, not right down at the window, because I can't reach it to put it away. Saw the PCN, opened the car door and the badge was on the floor. Unfortunately I did say I was driving and sent copy blue badge. I have sent two letters to VCS and the one I got last week said I still had to pay and I could still pay the original amount of £60. This is stressing me out, sleepless nights, worrying and causing my asthma to flare up. Not good at
  5. Hi, Can you just apply and pay the fee for a new blue badge submitting the relevant docs when you lose your blue badge? rather than going to the police station and convincing them that you really did lose it as the dvla want a reference number for them! Anyone been down this road? Thanks.
  6. Got PCN at hospital in NI. Ticket says no valid disabled badge on display. Disabled badge was on display and was visible in my opinion, though which side was up I couldn't say due to extreme stress. The badge belonged to registered owner who was in hospital and who in fact passed away a few hours after the ticket was put on the windscreen. The registered owner was not the driver but there was a key family member who was a passenger with mobility difficulties and so one of the disabled bay spaces was used. This is brutal and I am wondering how to address this as quick
  7. This is just a tip for anyone who receives a blue badge because they get tbe Mobility component of PIP. I was on DLA for years up until Nov 2016, when I was transferred to PIP. In the 'old days' with DLA, when you came to renewing your blue badge, you simply completed the application form, enclosed passport photo, ticked the DLA section and sent a photocopy of your DLA award letter (regardless of how old that letter was, as I assume the Blue badge team would check with DWP anyway). I re-applied for my Blue badge to be renewed a few weeks ago. I sent a photo -c
  8. Sunday 3rd September 2017, I forgot to display my Blue Badge when I parked in a Disabled space at Bluewater in Kent, obviously a genuine mistake because elsewhere in the area it is Free parking. Returning to the car I found a ticket, requiring £95 or £57 if paid within 14 days ( a bit steep either way). I appealed on-line at the PCM website at once. getting a letter this morning Thursday 7th, rejecting my appeal. Must I pay?
  9. Hi, hoping someone has some advice. While visiting family last week, my husband parked up in a disabled bay in a council car park while we took the children to the park. Parking was free for up to three hours. Blue badge and time clock displayed clearly. he drives a WAV, he has to be careful about how to park, very few car parks have spaces that are ok for WAVs. This particular car park layout meant for safely and to not cause an obstruction, he was within two BB spaces, ie making a 'through' space. We've parked there before with our previous WAV.
  10. Hi everyone, I'm new to the forums. On Sunday 30th July I attended my baby nephews baptism and celebration, which was in the town centre. There is nowhere for disabled drivers to park near the venue so I parked on a single yellow line, which I believed I was allowed to do for 3 hours. I left the car at 12.56pm by the clock in the car and set the timer for the blue badge at literally just before 1.00pm. One of my family went to move the car for me at 3.45pm and found a PCN stuck on the window screen. The contravention on the ticket says, "Parked or loading/unloading in a

  12. I qualified to become a driving intructor in 2012 and in Oct 2015 I gave my ADI badge back to the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) as I was no longer teaching due to being in a full time job. The DSA sent me a letter to confirm they received my ADI badge in Oct 2015 also confirmed they removed my name off the Driving Instructors Register. The DSA said in a letter I had ..."12 months from the date your name was removed from the ADI register on 30th Oct2015 to re-register without taking the driving instructor qualifying exams..." So in late Oct 2016 a few days before the 12 months was co

  14. Issued today (again to 'er indoors), and altho there are 'mitigating circumstances' for her egregious lack of consideration for those less mobile, I don't wanna offer them at the moment for fear of appearing to excuse her reprehensible behaviour. It was a Morrisons car park, free to use for 2 hrs, and I'm the RK. I'm going to await the NTK as usual, but at this stage (at the risk of being a bit previous), just wanted to know the current position regarding disabled bays in private car parks, and the extent of driver ID disclosure required by law. So, 1.
  15. Please advise! My 7 year old daughter is severely impaired and she has a blue badge. We use a wheelchair adapted car. We usually park in disabled bays. On 20th of Apr 2016 we received Parking Charge Notice from Gemini, parking operator ar Rivermead Centre Reading. The PCN states that the car exceeded the 30 minutes free of charge parking with 3 minutes. They've asked a payment of 100£, 60 payable in 14 days. My opinion : 1. I thought disabled parking (public or private) are free of charge. 2. The PCN was issued on 20th of Apr for a civil offence committed on 20 t
  16. Hi Folks, new poster here. I just got home after a shopping trip at a nearby shopping centre. I am disabled and use a badge holder attached to a cable which loops through the steering wheel, have had one stolen in the past. I do display my badge in the correct manner, but because the wire is a rigid one it is at times a problem to get it to lay flat or stand against the glass, but i do manage it. I came back to the car and the badge was face down and I had got a ticket for failing to display badge correctly, It was fine whe we parked and may have been dislodg
  17. Hi, I am a blue badge holder and our car was parked in a private retail car park (free for all customers). A PCN was posted on the windscreen as being parked in a disabled bay without displaying the badge. AS this topic seems to be a bit of a minefield and having got no further in my decision of how to deal with this despite reading up on the subject for days, I was hoping that someone here would be able to help. As I understand it I need to wait for the NtK before proceeding but also I have read that I should appeal within the first 14 days. I do intend
  18. Hi, I need your advice I parked on a street where nobody shows the timer this is on disabled and non-disabled cars, I parked in a disabled slot and placed my blue badge, when I came back 20mins later from a dental appointment I was given a notice, I have only had a blue badge a few months CODE 40 "Parked in a designated disabled persons parking place without clearly displaying a valid disabled persons badge" The images shown on the enforcement site showed 2 images taken at an angle so you could not see the dashboard or badge. I questioned this with photo evidence
  19. Making the Veterans badge a decoration will protect it because it is illegal under section 197 of the Army Act 1955 to use these to pretend to be a member of the armed forces. (This act will be superseded by the Armed Forces Act 2006 in November.) The act makes wearing any military decoration, badge, wound stripe or emblem without authority a criminal offense. It is also illegal to wear a replica "as to be calculated to deceive", and to falsely represent yourself as someone entitled to wear any such award. Making the Veterans Badge a military decoration will give it protectio
  20. Hope this is the correct thread, apologies if not. At beginning of July my husband drove to Brighton railway station to park as he normally does in the allocated disabled parking bays (which is managed by Meteor). On his arrival at 4.45am the service road to the parking bays was closed off due to resurfacing and a sign had been put up saying blue badge holders to use main car park and to collect a voucher from the car park attendant. He sought out the attendant who said he had just arrived there himself and at that time didnt have any vouchers nut to display his
  21. Hi all, I haven't been on here for a while but thought I would put this on here in hope of some advice. My father who is the owner/keeper of the car that received the PCN and my mother who are both holders of Blue Badges and in their late 70's/mid 80's. I was the one responsible for parking in the disable bay which as far as I am concerned had a perfect right to do so, but inadvertently forgot to put the badge on display due to having to physically lift a mobility scooter out of the car and help my mother into it. My father in a panic over this PCN started to fr
  22. In January I had an appointment at our local hospital for back to back sigmoidoscopy and gastrosopy. Understandably I was extremely scared and when parking in a disable bay I forgot to put my blue badge up. It was the last thing on my mind. I was in the hospital from 8.30 to 11.30 and when we came out we pad the parking fee and I found I had a parking ticket from te private parking company I just ignored as a friend of mine did hen she got a parking ticket from them and after she ignored letters they seemed to drop it. I was justified in parking there as I had a
  23. I need some advice on something with regards to having to display signs within a car park. My mum went to the local co-op on a Sunday evening around half 4. There is a car park at the side of the co-op which is free to park and thought it was the co-ops car park. She is a disabled badge holder and now in hindsight she should have put them on the dash but as she didn't realise it's a council car park and clearly being well out on the outskirts of town a traffic warden shouldn't even be around that area as it's nowhere near anything. So she entered the car park and
  24. The heading says it all. My partner has a blue badge and we have a disabled parking space right outside our house. Sadly we forgot to replace the badge on the dashboard after using the car yesterday and were given a ticket. Other than throwing ourself to the mercy and kindness of the authorities is there any way of avoiding the ticket. It is a local Council ticket and they were the ones who issued the blue badge and placed the disabled space for my partner when she was registered as being disabled.
  25. Hi, I parked my car in a pedestrian street that allows blue badge parking but received a PCN for being “parked in a restricted street during prescribed hours’. I contacted the council to make an informal appeal but they’ve just replied saying the PCN is valid as I’d been parked for more than 3 hours. I wasn’t aware blue badge holders can park in no waiting areas (I thought they were treated the same as no stopping areas) so I only parked there because there was a blue badge sign. I thought this overruled the no waiting sign and meant I could park for as long as I
