    Thanks again Vikstar, for bringing this to the forum's attention. This is an important issue that people need to be aware of, so at least people can do something about if they want to.

    This was posted back in June 2012 with a similar issue.

    Personally I don’t see this anymore of a problem than sticking a Blue Badge on your dash and bumping into your neighbour.

    Most of my neighbours know, our front garden is an overgrown mess but they know I don’t always have the energy to do anything about it.

    You can listen to a short telephone interview about this subject with one of the B and W welfare rights advisers on Radio Gloucestershire.

    Thanks to Flymo for resurrecting this thread on the forum.

    I had forgotten to update it.

    As a result of bandw's campaign and complaints from many other individuals, the "Disabled" wording for the vehicle taxation class was removed.

    The fight now continues to have the 12 Month rate £0.00 wording removed.

    Besides a small group of vehicles that come under this group, this is still a very good indication that the owner/user of the vehicle is in receipt of a qualifying benefit.
