Shame on the Blue Badge cheats

11 October, 2018

• I LIVE on Pratt Street and every single car parked here in the pay and display has a Blue Badge.

Occasionally someone who is genuinely disabled will park and get out with their mobility aid but everyone else seems perfectly capable of walking.

Of course, some have hidden disabilities but when I see builders, cleaners, a taxi driver, a waitress and others blatantly park and go into their places of work I do wonder.

Do these people have no conscience about cheating? It’s not only the cash-strapped council but also the infirm who have nowhere to park.

The government estimates it costs taxpayers more than £4.3million every year in lost revenue so why is nothing ever done about it? Shame on you Blue Badge cheats.
