    Right, as someone living with someone with a blue badge I'm going to clarify in simple terms. I'm going to reinclude this link (provided by @Mr Bloke) - LINK

    IF the badge holder, as either the driver or a passenger, parks in a disabled bay then they MUST exit the vehicle. Not doing so falls under misuse, a criminal offence according to the Blue Badge terms & conditions of use. By not exiting the vehicle you are seen to be letting others take advantage of the parking concessions afforded to blue badge holders. 


    Not quite. Supermarket car parks are seen as general public accessible land, during hours of opening, therefore a public place and covered by Road Traffic Act 1988. (LINK)


    Exactly what I said xx

    Hey up! :wave:

    Not seen you on here for ages... I hope you're well! :)

    Hello.  I am fine thanks,  hope you are too.  I couldn't face SF after Rossyrooney passed away,   He had become a friend in real life.  I still fondly remember you and the 12 days of Christmas.  Dangling LOL

    A blue badge is nothing to do with parking charges. Parking charges are free anyway  when parking in supermarket car parks.  The original point was : Does a disabled person displaying a blue badge but being driven by a non disabled person, have to get out of the car when the non disabled driver does. The answer is NO ! 

    Unless they are in a disabled bay and then it is YES

    You may be, but the original question was; does the disabled person have to get out of the car - which was subsequently determined NOT to be in a disabled bay at the time, but unnecessarily displaying a blue badge.

    My comment originally was referring to disabled bays because it was suggested that disabled people can sit in the car IN A DISABLED BAY while the able bodied person goes in the shop.  I am not daft enough to think they can't sit in the car in a normal parking space

    If only the abled bodied person is going to leave the vehicle, then it should not be parked in a blue-badge bay. If it is parked in a normal bay, then it doesn't matter if someone - disabled or otherwise - remains in it.

    That is correct and exactly my point

    I don't think that is quite correct, pattricia. A friend of mine quite often goes out with her husband, they have badge as she is disabled and she often sits in the vehicle whilst he goes into shops &c.

    The point is that if the disabled person is sitting in the car and the able bodied person is going in the shop for whatever reason they should not use the limited number of disabled bays which are needed by disabled people who need to exit the vehicle.

    Mr Duffems is also pleased to be reading the banter on here, we come as a matching pair, like salt and pepper, Laurel and Hardy, fish and chips, chalk and cheese, maybe not that but, you get the gist. We're like a pair of tree penguins, rare and unique.



    Eyup Duffems.  How are you diddling?

    Hello Chris.  How are you all?  I have such lovely memories of your mum and dad.  Hours  spent eating cake and putting the world to rights.  I was privileged to call them friends

    I went to secondary modern from 1965 to 1969 and remember there being an air raid shelter on the school playing fields. I think it was near to a clump of trees. It had a steel cover over the entrance which we once prized open and crawled inside. It was too dark to see much, then we were hauled out by a teacher, i think it was filled in and sealed up soon after.

    You couldn't have gone to Ecclesfield Secondary modern, it closed in July 1962 and most of the pupils transferred to Colley.  Aedificamus was the motto of the Grammar school 


  9. I became a teenager in 1964. It was the best of times. Saw Hendrix and the Who at the city Hall (different times). The Move 3 times and Zappa in Manchester. What a time to be a teenager. What music. I am still going to City Hall to watch my absolute favourite singer Chris Farlowe and others from my teenage years - peace and love :love::love::love:
