New Blue Badge Laws

Recommended Posts

With new blue badge laws coming in and the demand for spaces set to soar are sheff council ignoring gov law for council to increase spaces.

Prime example Northumberland road near charles clifford dental hospital '

The part of the road about 500 mtrs long had single yellow lines and allowed blue badge holders to park . As  it was adjacent to the dental  hospital it was a life line to patients going for hourly appointments there. This has part of the road is wide enough for 3 cars so space no issue why have they painted yellow lines on curb to  to stop blue badge holders parking . 

. Its throwing scorn in disabled peoples faces a disgrace and the person who autherised it  should be sacked .

The spaces outside hospital are always full / the extra space was a god send for disabled drivers on appointments a disgrace to sheff council get it put back to the original yellow lines or look for another job you morons

So you have no idea why the decision was made yet you come on a public forum and call the people who made the decision ‘morons’?  🙄

Not much chance of someone parking for an appointment if you've been taking space  for 20 years.

Why not ask at Charles Clifford, they're likely to have had a say in it. It could have been down to the knock on effect of changes at Weston Park for example

Asked nobody knows /   Phoned council again a woman starts telling me the rules about parking  with a blue badge then told me to  go read the signs on the road she had no idea

As someone eligible for a blue badge (I chose not to apply as I manage my disability enough to walk unaided) , blue badges and spaces should be limited to those that physically cannot get about without aid. 

 

These new inclusions will only further the rampant abuse of the scheme.

Yes you are quite right blue badges are vastly abused and its about time it was stopped think a 

law has come in abusers can get a £1000 fine about time the wardens / courts did a few send out a message. Good on on you to manage without a badge but there are genuine cases out there

The demand will soar now, particularly as people with mental health problems are being given blue badges. Designated spaces are wider than normal to accommodate physically disabled people, particularly wheelchair users. That is why the logo is a wheelchair. People with mental health issues may not need this facility if they are fully ambulant. Unfortunately, there is no separation between the two and it will mean that those of us who care for wheelchair users and need the wider spaces will really struggle.
