The blue badge scheme (an on-street parking scheme) allows people to park free of charge in some instances.  It is recognised that there is widespread abuse of the scheme and valuable resources are expended in trying to deal with the abuse but the abuse is increasing.

People with severe mobility problems who rely on the badge in order to park close to places they wish to visit are finding it increasingly difficult to find parking spaces.

Consider removing the 'free' parking eliment from the legislation.  This will remove the abuse of the scheme altogether.  Those needing to park close to their destination will be able to find a parking space.   

Why is this idea important?

Allowing people with severe mobility problems to park close to places they wish to visit.
