A blue badge sign is outside of her house where she holds a badge and has a disabled bay. This is causing more BB holders to park there. She would like the sign removed.
A new enquiry has been raised for this issue.

This is a statutory disabled parking bay in the Cotham Residents Parking Scheme area. As it stands it can only be legally used by any vehicle displaying a valid disabled blue badge. The sign allows this restriction to be enforced and for any vehicle parked there that does not display a valid blue badge to receive a parking ticket. The removal of the enforcement sign would not prevent other blue badge holders from parking in the bay but would allow able bodied drivers to park there without any consequences. It would have the exact opposite effect of what the citizen intends. Therefore the sign has to remain in place in order to ensure that only blue badge holders can park in this bay.
