The government are cracking down on those that use a blue badge in a fraudulent way. They claim that £46 million each year is lost in parking revenue.

It is thought that more than 2.5million use the blue badge scheme, so even the eligibility criterion has changed in the last year, with people having to re-apply for their badge.
