Perhaps that's what they hand out on the Motability Scheme these days ?
It used to be three buses...
Gentrification, eh ?
Are these badge ever verified? I know of a young person who works locally, has a car with a blue badge parked on Green Lanes. He's as fit as a fiddle.
My Dad has a blue badge that Mum uses because he's genuinely disabled.
Seems to me there is a lot of abuse of the system.
On another note, the parking restrictions on Green Lanes north bound don't lift until 18.30 yet there are parked cars filling up the bus lane at 18.00 and before.
People make a lot of assumptions about Disabled Badges. I took a wheelchair using friend to the supermarket once. I went out to the car to load the shopping in the boot while he went to the toilet and I was actually attacked by someone who tried to take the blue badge off the dash and pinned me against a wall, screaming for someone to call the Police on me, and refusing to listen to my claims that the badge holder would be there in a minute. Really scary. And no apology when the badge holder emerged. Just because you can't see the disabled person immediately doesn't mean they aren't present. Another thing I know is how extraordinarily difficult it is to obtain a blue badge.
