Crackdown on Blue Badge cheats


Motorists  illegally using Blue Badges to park in disabled bays and avoid parking charges were the target for enforcement teams in a recent day of action when East Sussex County Council teamed up with Sussex police in a crackdown on the misuse of the badges. Hundreds of checks were made and 10 badges were seized from drivers not entitled to use them.

Operation Bluebird will continue over the next two years and members of the public are being encouraged to report the misuse of these badges by calling 01323 464244  or emailing whenever they see the badges apparently being misused.  [Source: East Sussex County Council]
