Health and wellbeing Blue Badge Enforcement

The Blue badge enforcement team

Officers patrol the city observing vehicles and enforcing against motorists who abuse or misuse the Blue Badge scheme.

Why do we enforce?

There are over two million disabled people's parking badges (otherwise known as Blue Badges) in the UK.  Abuse of the scheme by those who are not entitled to its concessions can undermine the scheme credibility.  This can impact on the mobility of disabled people, who have a genuine requirement and are unable to make use of parking spaces, which are being used illegally.

We have a dedicated team who gather evidence against drivers who misuse a genuine badge and also prosecute individuals who use a fake blue badge.

If you see an example of blue badge abuse or misuse, please report it to our enforcement team.
