Blue Badge misuse leads to prosecutions of more family members

Published Tuesday, 2 July 2019

Five more drivers have been caught and prosecuted for misusing a Blue Badge, and ordered to pay fines totalling £2,523.

In four of the cases, the drivers displayed Blue Badges belonging to family members while the fifth driver displayed a friend’s badge. In all cases, the drivers were caught while benefitting from parking concessions in the absence of the badge holder.

To date, more than 175 drivers have been prosecuted in Bromley for Blue Badge offences since the launch of the misuse campaign in 2016.  Similar offences include displaying Blue Badges that have been cancelled due to being reported as lost or stolen, or cancelled because the holder has passed away.
