    Blue Badge holders and car parking charges

    Hi,

    Hope you don't mind me promoting an e-petition but I'm extremely concerned that blue badge holders are being targeted by councils (e.g. Suffolk Coastal District Council) to raise revenue. Remember, if one council gets away with it then they all will. What then is the point of having a blue badge?

    Please sign if you agree that the double charges are unfair http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/31364

    The point is having a wider than normal space - a Blue Badge isn't about saving money, it's about aiding your disability.

    In this part of the world where Councils do charge for BB parking Tax-Exempt vehicles still go free.
